The annual LOROS Light up a Life event will take place on 2nd December, giving you the opportunity to remember your loved one this Christmas.
Dr Nik Kotecha OBE, Chief Executive Officer of Morningside Pharmaceuticals, which is sponsoring the Light up a Life event, said: “Christmas is a time of giving and receiving when families come together and enjoy one another’s company.
“But for those families who have lost loved ones, Christmas can be a difficult time, where celebration maybe replaced by loss and grief.
“Light up a Life provides people with the opportunity to honour and remember loved ones by celebrating their life at a special remembrance service.
“At Morningside, family is at the heart of our business, so it’s a privilege for us to support this event once more, as we have done for the past two years.
“Whether you’ve lost a loved one, or would just like to come along and be part of the lovely festive service – please join us at this year’s Light up a Life event.”
Light up a Life provides people with the opportunity to honour and remember loved ones by celebrating their life at a special remembrance service.
As well as being a time for reflection and peace in what can be a hectic festive period, you can sponsor a light on the Hospice’s Christmas tree in memory of your loved one.
Their name will also be entered into a Light up a Life Book of Remembrance which will be on display in the chapel at the Hospice and will be there throughout Christmas.
If you are unable to attend the service you are most welcome to visit the Hospice to see the lights shining brightly on the tree until the first week in January.
While the service will be taking place on the Hospice grounds, outside, the Hospice will be open for those that wish to visit the chapel.
Those wanting to sponsor a light can now donate online up until 27th November, if they want their loved ones name added to the Remembrance Book too.
This year’s event takes place on Sunday 2nd December from 4.30pm in the Hospice grounds.
