Light up a Life 2021

Thousands of lights will shine brightly in the grounds of St Benedict’s Hospice over the festive season, each in honour of someone special who is greatly missed.

When you make a donation, we will send you a personalised commemorative card with the name, or names, of your loved one. Take time to remember and celebrate the life of your loved one, whilst supporting local patients, their family and friends at this time of year.

We will post dedications out from the end of November 2021, in time for our Light up a Life service. To ensure that your Light up a Life dedication(s) are included in the service remembrance book, please make your dedication and donation by Friday, 5th November 2021.

Our Light up a Life service will be taking place at St Benedict’s Hospice, Ryhope, SR2 0NY at 4.30pm on Sunday, 5th December. During the service, the lights in the hospice grounds will be lit – each of them shining in memory of a loved one. There will be uplifting music, singing and comforting readings to enjoy together. We will also be sharing the Light up a Life service online via the St Benedict’s Hospice website and social media accounts. We hope you are able to join us to celebrate the lives of those we love.

This year we are delighted to be able to welcome you back to the hospice grounds for our Light up a Life service. The service will begin at 4.30pm and we ask that you please arrive no earlier than 4pm as we are not able to have stalls this year, in the way that we have in the past. There will be tea lights available for a donation to the hospice and a small number of Christmas gift and refreshment stalls outdoors.

The event will be subject to any covid-19 restrictions in place at the time and we will be sharing updates in the lead up to the service here on our website and on our social media channels.
