Light up a Life Myton Hospice Warwick

From 08/12/2019 to 08/12/2019

Warwick Myton Hospice

The festive season is an exciting time with bustling shops, presents to wrap and catching up with friends and family. But it is also the time of year when we take time to remember those who are no longer with us and the difference they made to our lives.

Every December we host Light up a Life services at our hospices in CoventryRugby and Warwick to give families and friends the chance to celebrate the lives of their loved ones in the run-up to Christmas – when memories feel somehow more poignant.

We would like to invite you to join us at one of these remembrance evenings.

In return for a donation, you can dedicate a light on one of our Christmas trees in memory of your loved one and have their name included in the service. Your gift will help to ensure we can keep caring for patients and families who need us now and in the future.

When you make your Light up a Life donation we will send you a special tag which you are invited to bring along to your chosen service and tie on to one of our trees.

If you are unable to attend one of the Light up a Life services but would still like to make a donation, we hope you can still feel part of the campaign by remembering your loved ones and tying the tag onto your tree at home.

If you would like to continue to support us in memory of a loved one then why not set up an In-memory page here.
