Remember someone special this festive season
A chance for communities to come together to reflect on fond memories of those who are no longer with us
Light up a Life is perhaps the most poignant series of events in the Hospice’s calendar.
The Hospice's annual Light up a Life season helps people come together during the festive season to share their love for those they have lost and celebrate their lives.
This year, we are offering our traditional Light up a Life services as well as the opportunity to make a dedication online.
All our Light up a Life services are open to all, regardless of whether you have any connection to the Hospice.
Take part in an act of remembrance
Attend a service
St Nicholas Hospice Care and local churches work in partnership to offer the opportunity for bereaved families to celebrate and remember those they love.
Our Light up a Life services, held across West Suffolk and Thetford, include music and the opportunity to hear the names of loved ones read out.
You are warmly invited to remember your loved one’s name which will be read out at a service of your choice.
Our Light up a Life services are completely free of charge, but any donation towards our work would be greatly appreciated.
Create an online dedication
As well as a calendar of local events during December, this year we are offering you the opportunity to take part in an act of remembrance online and share stories of loved ones on your social media pages.
Working with Echoleft, an online memorial website, a candle will be lit in memory of a lost loved one. Just like our Light up a Life services, this act of remembrance is open to all, regardless of whether they have any connection to the Hospice.
It is something we hope people will feel able to share with their friends and family creating a joint moment of remembrance.
The website helps you put together a dedication, which can include written memories, music, photos and videos, which you can then share on social media.
There is no charge to use the service, but any donations to the Hospice will be gratefully received.
