Light up a Life
Light up our community with memories of someone you love.
Light up a Life is an occasion to remember and celebrate the lives of someone who is no longer with us, but is always in our thoughts.
Why not dedicate a light to your special someone?
Each light symbolises and celebrates the life of that person, remembering precious moments and memories.
The aim of Hospice at Home has always been to provide a peaceful and dignified death for every patient at home, whilst also supporting their families and carers. As a Charity we rely on the kindness and generosity of our local community. The annual Light up a Life Appeal donations helps us provide many hours of care and comfort within the home, in anticipation of your support, we thank you, your kindness will be making a difference at a difficult time.
As part of your Light up a Life support:
- A tree will bear the light dedicated to your loved one.
- You'll receive a personalised card.
- The names of those who are being remembered will be added to a Book of Remembrance which can be viewed on this page at the end of the year.
Longstanding Carlisle Volunteer, Josephine shared why she annually lights up a light for her Husband Derek:
'We don't forget, our memories linger forever and keep us going. Not a day goes by when we don't think of our loved ones and wish they were still here by our side.
Hospice at Home, Light up a Life service means so much to me and others, a time to give thanks for all the times Derek and I spent together and for the care from Hospice at Home, even though it was only for a short time it meant so much to us and Derek could stay at home with his family around him. This same care continues today by our excellent team of nurses and volunteers.
Light up a life service is something to look forward to, it is relaxing and meaningful, a time to reflect and uplift us and encourage us to carry on and give thanks.'
