Light up a Life is our Christmas-time celebration of everything that St Clare stands for – standing side by side with families from across our community in honour of their loved ones who are no longer with us.
This year, seven unique services will be held throughout our catchment area in November and December with carols, music, readings in the company of those who understand. Candles are lit at each service, every shining light representing the life and memories of a loved one. Everyone, of all faiths and none, is welcome to attend these free services, not just those who have experienced St Clare’s support first-hand.
Dedicate a Star
New for 2019, you are now able to request a Light up a Life Star to personalise with your own special message of remembrance. In return for a donation, your Star will be displayed here at the Hospice throughout December.
You can request your Star(s) on the registration form below or by calling the Fundraising team on 01279 773750. We can either send them in the post to you to complete and send back, or we will set them aside for you to collect at your chosen service.
Our Book of Remembrance
Our Light up a Life 2019 Book of Remembrance offers you the opportunity to make a personal dedication to your loved one(s). Our Book of Remembrance will be displayed at each service and in our Hospice Sanctuary throughout the festive season for you to come and visit at any time.
If you are unable to attend a Light up a Life service this year, you can still make a dedication in our Book of Remembrance and request a Star. We will also send you a personalised Christmas card which will include the name(s) of your dedications and a small personalised message, unless you inform us otherwise.
Submissions for our Book of Remembrance close on Friday 15th November.
This year, we are offering Light up a Life services at different venues throughout your local area. We would love for you to join us at one of our events.
Please register for your preferred service on the registration form below. You can also indicate who you would like to make a dedication to, request your Light up a Life Star and make your kind donation here too.

Finally, if you would like to register for a service but not make a donation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01279 773750.
Please note: The three services being held at St Clare Hospice, Hastingwood, are now ticketed and will operate on a first-come-first-serve policy.
Unless you inform us otherwise, we will send your ticket(s) in the post to you as soon as we receive your booking.
