FAMILIES are invited to remember the life of someone special by dedicating a light in the at St Luke's Light Up a Life ceremony.

The annual service of remembrance is being held at the hospice in Winsford on Sunday, December 1 from 4.30pm.

Nurse Clare Wolff, day hospice manager, said: “Our Light Up a Life remembrance service offers time to reflect and remember friends and family who are no longer with us. Reflecting on time shared together can bring comfort, so we warmly invite you to join us and remember someone dear to you.

“During the service we illuminate our tree of light as a symbol of life cherished and remembered. Our tree acts as a shining memorial to thousands of people who are dearly loved and missed, providing a chance for you to pause and reflect, taking time to think about your own treasured memories.”

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 the loved one will be entered into a book of memories and will be available to view at the service and at the hospice throughout the year.

Clare Wolff added: “Dedicating a light is not only a way of remembering someone, it helps to raise vital funds for St Luke’s. Your donation will help our patients to achieve the best possible care, giving them the chance to spend precious time with their loved ones.
