Dr Kershaw’s Hospice – Light Up A Life

Dr Kershaw’s Hospice – Light Up A Life


Dr Kershaw’s Hospice – Light Up a Life. Christmas is a poignant time of year when we remember those who are no longer with us, and the difference they made to our lives.  Each December, Light Up A Life brings together families and friends to remember loved ones at a special evening service at Dr Kershaw’s Hospice.

During the service, their dedicated tree will be illuminated to remember all those special people in our lives, followed by a carol service. The lights on the tree will remain lit from dusk until dawn through to Monday 6th January 2020.

Healthcare Assistants, Carole England and Glynnis Goulding, said: “Having been part of the nursing team here at Dr Kershaw’s for many years, we know how much Light Up A Life means to everyone.

“It’s a special and poignant event, bringing families, friends, staff and volunteers together as we reflect and remember loved ones.

“By dedicating a light on the tree to your loved one your gift also helps us to continue providing the best care to patients and families.”

You can make a dedication in memory of a love one online at www.drkh.org.uk/events/light-life/ or call the Fundraising team on 0161 624 9984. Alternatively, forms can be filled in on the evening. There is no minimum amount for dedications, however, if your donation is £30 or more Dr. Kershaws will send you a Light Up A Life pin as a keepsake.
