Trinity Hospice, Bispham
We’d like to invite you to Light up a Life- our special service of remembrance
We’ll be holding two Light Up a Life services this December.
More details below
We are delighted to see the return of one of our most important events this year, Light Up a Life.
Light Up a Life is an opportunity for members of our community and beyond to celebrate the lives of those we love, and miss.
Traditionally held every year, the service is filled with carols and poignant readings from special guests, culminating in the illumination of the hospice gardens with thousands of lights – each dedicated to the memory of a loved one. We also take time to reflect on our memories over mulled wine or a cup of tea and enjoy a special evening together.
Guests are also invited to visit the Christmas tree in our Chapel decorated with beautiful Memory Stars, honouring those we are remembering on the evening.
This year’s services
This year we will be running two services in the hospice gardens . This first will be on Thursday 9th December 2021 at 7pm, and the second on Sunday 12th December 2021 at 4pm. Both will be held in our beautiful gardens at the hospice in Bispham and are open to people across the Fylde coast.
Despite the easing of restrictions, we know that it still may not be possible for you to join us at the services. With that in mind, we will also be sharing an online Light up a Life service which you can watch with your loved ones, wherever you are. The service will be available to watch from Thursday 9th December at 7pm on our YouTube channel, Trinity Facebook page and here on our website.

Trinity Hospice is not part of the NHS but a charity, which for the past 36 years has been able to support families across the Fylde coast thanks to the incredible generosity of our local community. 3 out of every 5 of our patients is paid for through the generosity of our community, which is why your generosity will help us greatly.
With your support, we’ll continue to look after local people and their families throughout the holiday season – including on Christmas day – as we do throughout the rest of the year. It’s thanks to the kindness of our supporters that we are able to do this.
Whatever you are able to give, we are all extremely grateful here at Trinity Hospice. Thank you.
