Light up a Life
The loss of a loved one can be particularly poignant in the days and weeks before Christmas and the New Year. So Rennie Grove Hospice Care’s Light Up a Life services during November and December are an uplifting way to come together with friends and family to remember someone special.
Lisa Makey, Head of Family Support at Rennie Grove said: ‘Please join us at one of our Light up a Life services. They are open to everyone, not just those touched by hospice care. At each of our services you can sponsor a light to shine in memory of your loved one. Everyone who sponsors a light will receive a beautiful card that includes a silver “in loving memory” star that you can hang on your own Christmas tree. Everyone making a Light up a Life general donation will receive a card, too.
‘We have seven services in a range of locations across Bucks and Herts. Each event is slightly different but most include traditional carols and readings and are a good way to join others to reflect and remember and to light a candle to those whose memory you treasure.’
