About the events
Every Light up a Life event is different. Usually, the most important part of these events is the opportunity to dedicate a message in memory of a loved one by:
lighting a candle
hanging a message on a tree
recording the name of someone special in a book of remembrance or reading it aloud.
Events take place in a variety of venues, including hospice gardens or chapels and local churches or town squares.
For most hospices, Light up a Life is one of their best-loved and most meaningful events, attracting hundreds of local people year after year. It represents a time to be comforted and to share hope with others. The events are open to all, not just those who have experienced hospice care.
