Light up a Life

This December, the magnificent tree in the Hospice garden will be illuminated with hundreds of lights shining brightly in memory of so many wonderful people. 
Each light on the tree represents the life of someone that has brought so much love and happiness to others. We warmly invite you to honour the memory of your loved one, by dedicating a light on our tree. Your dedications will pay tribute to your loved ones, whose lives will always be remembered and loved.

Our services will be taking place at various locations, starting from the 26th of November, check them out here.
