St Luke’s Hospice in Winsford is inviting people to remember the life of someone special to them by dedicating a light in their memory at the hospice’s Light Up a Life ceremony.
The annual service of remembrance is being held at the hospice on Sunday 25th November, from 4.30pm.
Nurse Liz Freeman, ward manager at St Luke’s Hospice, said: “At St Luke’s, we understand that the loss of someone special can be the hardest and loneliest of experiences.
“Light up a Life is a chance for us to come together and remember friends and family who are no longer with us by lighting a candle and sharing songs and readings.
“Our Tree of Light is a shining memorial to those who are dearly loved and missed, and is a chance for you to pause, reflect and remember as well as to focus on your own treasured memories.”
Becky Harland from Weaverham dedicated a light in memory of her dad at last year’s service.
She said: “Light Up a Life is always a special event and gives us the chance, as a family, to come together and remember Dad, alongside lots of others remembering their loved ones too.
“It’s a very emotional event with such beautiful readings and music.”
Anyone can make a donation in memory of someone special, they do not need to have been cared for by St Luke’s.
The name of their loved one will be entered into a book of memories, alongside the names and dedications of others, and will be available to view at the service.
St Luke’s will also be publishing the Book of Memories on its website for the first time this year, making it easier for people to see the names of those they are remembering if they are unable to attend the ceremony.
