Light up a Life is a 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. We know how much our annual Light up a Life services mean to so many local families, so we are doing our very best to make arrangements so that these events can take place safely throughout December.

This year, St Clare will be holding five services here on the Hospice grounds with carols, recorded music, and 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 Light up a Life Star

You are now able to request your own Light up a Life Star for you to write a special message of remembrance. In return for a donation, your Star will be displayed around the Hospice throughout December. You will be able to see images of your Stars on our social media channels as we are still unable to welcome you into the Hospice due to covid-19 regulations.

You can request your Stars by clicking on the button below or by calling the Fundraising Team on 01279 773 750 or email light@stclarehospice.org.uk we will then post them out to you to complete and send back.

Add a dedication to the St Clare Book of Remembrance

The St Clare Book of Remembrance offers you the opportunity to make a personal dedication to your loved ones. This year, the Book of Remembrance will be digital only and available to access here on the St Clare website in due course. Please check back here for a link to the digital Book of Remembrance throughout December.

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 Light up a Life Star. We will also send you a personalised Christmas card which will include the names of your dedications and a small personalised message, unless you inform us otherwise.

Submissions for our Book of Remembrance close on Friday 20th November.

Complete your dedication for the Book of Remembrance by clicking on the button below or by calling the Fundraising Team on 01279 773 750 or email light@stclarehospice.org.uk
