Light Up A Life at Home 2020

Christmas is coming and as we approach this special time of year we would like to invite you to join us to remember your loved one(s) at our annual Light Up A Life service online on Sunday 6 December at 2pm.

This year, our Light up a Life Service will be streamed live over the internet from Willow Burn Hospice by DW Media. Unfortunately current restrictions mean we are unable to host the service with guests as we usually would, so this is the next best thing. During the special service we will still sing carols, listen to readings and performances, and light candles in memory of loved ones, the only difference is, you will be joining us from the comfort of your own home.

Kirsty Crozier, Operations Director at Willow Burn Hospice said: “For over 15 years the team at Willow Burn has put together a Light Up A Life Service in memory of loved one(s). Over the years the event has grown but the heart of it has never changed; it’s a time to come together and celebrate the lives of your loved one(s) in a caring and loving environment. Earlier in the summer, we made the decision that we couldn’t let the pandemic break this tradition, Light Up A Life will still go ahead, albeit a little different.”

The team at Willow Burn would also like to thank Daniel Wilkinson owner of DW Media, who has chosen to support Light Up A Life by sharing his team’s expertise: “When we heard about Willow Burn Hospice looking into live streaming, getting involved was a no brainer. We always strive to work with local charities and small business and it is our pleasure to offer this to one of these amazing local charities. We are very happy that our involvement will ensure this yearly event still goes ahead in some form.”
