Light up a Life is a lovely way to remember and celebrate the lives of those who won’t be here to share Christmas with us this year, but who remain in our thoughts and memories.

You can write a personal dedication message and upload your own image to our Light up a Life night sky. Then, their star will shine brightly in the sky, for the whole festive period.

Andrea is dedicating a light to her dad, Andy. Andy died, aged 72, from prostate cancer in 2014 after being cared for at Bolton Hospice.

"We took part in the Light up a Life service at the hospice the following December and found this very moving. It was a lovely service at a special time of year and the emotion felt when the candles were lit was palpable. I still light the candle at home every Christmas."

When you donate to the appeal, we’ll send you a commemorative card dedicated to your loved one and their name will be added to our Book of Remembrance here at the hospice.

Join us at a Light up a Life Service

Our remembrance services in December are open to everyone who has dedicated a light and donated to the appeal. This will be an opportunity to come together to remember and reflect on loved ones who are no longer with us.

This year our services will be held on:

  • Wednesday 6th December at Bolton Parish Church at 7pm
  • Wednesday 13th December at Bolton Hospice at 6.30pm

Remember at home

If you are unable to attend one of the services or just prefer to remember at home, you can still dedicate a light to your loved one. If you would like to receive your commemorative card and for your loved one’s name to be placed in the Book of Remembrance, simply make a donation and let us know the names of those who are special to you.

To join the appeal, and dedicate a light to someone special please add your light to our night sky. Alternatively, for more information please contact Mark on 01204 663065.
