Get involved

You and your family are invited to join us at our Light up a Life event.

The event is taking place on Sunday 10th December 2023 from 12.30-3.30pm, with a ceremony taking place at 1.30pm.

Attendance is on a drop-in basis, and you are welcome to stay for as long as you wish during the event. You will be able to enjoy our beautiful Christmas tree with lights shining for your loved ones and to view your dedications in our Book of Remembrance. There will be the opportunity to take part in activities led by our Spiritual Care team, and purchase hot drinks and seasonal hot food from our on-site coffee shop, Crumbles, all to a backdrop of reflective live music.

If you’d like to send us a dedication and photo in memory of your loved one, please visit our MuchLoved page. Please consider making a donation along with your dedication, if you can. Please note, the deadline for dedications to be included in our Book of Remembrance displayed on the event day has now passed, however any further submissions will be added to the book post-event, and will be included in the digital version.
