Light up a Life 2019

We welcome you to our Light up a Life Appeal.

Light up a Life offers a unique opportunity for us to come together as a community to remember and celebrate the lives, memories and achievements of the people we love. It is a time to reflect on the happiness that these special people brought, and continue to bring, to our lives. It is also a chance to share hope, comfort and solidarity with others.

When you make a Light up a Life dedication, a light will be illuminated, representing the special person you are remembering on our Hospice tree which will take pride of place in our Hospice gardens. A light will also be dedicated on a tree at Rochdale Parish Church.

To celebrate Light up a Life you will receive a special commemorative card, bearing the name of your special person, which you can display in your home, and cherish as a special keepsake. This year, we are also including a ‘dedication star’ in which you can personalise with your very own message and place on the tree at one of our Hospice services, or keep as your own memento. The name of each person for whom a light is dedicated will also appear in our Book of Lights, which will be available to view at our Light up a Life services, and will be displayed at the Hospice throughout the year.

This year we are holding services in our Hospice grounds. The services will take place on Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December. These services will be ticketed (admission is free) to ensure we provide a safe and comfortable experience for all. A fifth service will take place at Rochdale Parish Church on Thursday 5th December at 7pm. We warmly invite you to attend one of these services, whether you wish to dedicate a light or not.

If you wish to take part in our Light up a Life appeal this year to remember someone you love, a special person who has died or an absent friend, contact the Fundraising Office on 01706 641790 (option 1).
