Join us to remember and celebrate the life of someone special this Christmas.

Christmas can be a very emotional occasion, a special season for spending time with friends and family, and for remembering those who are no longer with us. Their absence can be deeply felt, whether their death was recent, or if many years have passed.

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. Unique services will be held throughout our catchment area in November and December with carols, music, readings and refreshments, in the company of those who understand.

Our Online Book of Remembrance

Light Up A Life is an occasion to make a personal dedication in memory of someone special and all names are included in our interactive Online Book of Remembrance, as well as being inscribed into our hardback book for you to view throughout the year at the Hospice. Candles are lit at each service, every shining light representing the life and memories of a loved one.

Within our Online Book, you can put the name of your loved one and a short personal message, and if you wish, make an online donation to the hospice charity. You can also tell us which service you are planning to attend.

If you are unable to attend a service, you can still make a dedication in our Book of Remembrance and Online Book.

Just click on the button ‘Sign our Book of Remembrance’ below.
