Trinity Hospice, Bispham
Remember & celebrate the life of a loved one and help us support local families this Christmas
We’re delighted to invite you to our Light up a Life service, held in our beautiful hospice garden on Sunday 8th December at 4.30pm.
Light up a Life is a vibrant, uplifting celebration of the memories of those most precious to us – a poignant way to start the festive season at Trinity Hospice.
There will be a short service with carols and readings, before we illuminate our garden with hundreds of lights – each one shining in memory of someone special.
After the event we will gather around the Christmas tree in the Chapel, adorned with beautiful Memory Stars filled with messages remembering our loved ones, and share a glass of mulled wine or a cup of tea with others in our community.
To dedicate a light to a loved one, please click the green ‘make a dedication’ sticker above and complete the form. Alternatively, if you would like to receive a dedication form, please contact the fundraising department on 01253 952561.
If you are unable to attend, you can still dedicate as many lights as you wish. Each name we receive will be inscribed in our Book of Dedications, which will be available to view at the hospice. We will also send you a special Dedication Card, inscribed with the names you have asked us to remember this year.
We also have some guests of honour attending our service this year: John and Duncan Armfield – the sons of Jimmy Armfield.
On his many visits to Trinity Dad looked out onto the grounds with a keen eye on the gardens, so it’s wonderful to be given the chance to remember him and honour the memories of so many others during Light up a Life.
Our service begins at 4:30pm, but you are welcome to arrive from 3:30pm.
Please note that this is an outdoor, standing event which lasts around an hour. Ensure you wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the season.
Throughout the holiday season – including on Christmas day – we will continue to care for local people and their families as we do throughout the rest of the year. If you can, we are asking you to consider making a donation this Christmas to enable our specialist teams to provide our vital care throughout the winter.
As a charity, the care of 3 out of every 5 of our patients paid for through the generosity of our community. Our community’s kindness enables our patients and their families to experience wonderful moments that will one day become cherished memories.
Thank you for your continued support.
