With the arrival of the colder nights and changing of the seasons, we are starting to think about Christmas.

Although lots of things have changed and had to be cancelled, we are really pleased that we can give you the opportunity to remember your loved ones, with this year’s Light up a Life appeal.

Light up a Life is our Christmas time celebration of everything that we stand for; joining together with families from across our community to remember our loved ones.

Full of the warmth and love that we have been bringing to local people's lives for 38 years, Light up a Life gives you the special opportunity to make a dedication on our Light up a Life tree.

We understand that the festive period can be difficult if you have lost someone special and we really hope this appeal can help to provide some comfort and peace throughout this time.

Remember your loved ones

By supporting our Light up a Life appeal, from the safety of your own home, you can keep your memories shining bright this Christmas.  

  • A personalised star will be placed on one of our official Light up a Life trees in memory of your loved one, from the 14th November.
  • Your loved one’s name will feature in the Light up a Life Book of Memories. This will be available to view in our beautiful room for reflection in the New Year.
  • You can choose from 3 digital stars to place on our digital Light up a Life tree & dedicate them to your loved one.
  • You will receive an invitation to the watch the live stream of our Light up a Life Service.

We will have a tree shining brightly outside our hospice, plus trees in the Hillstreet Centre, Middlesbrough and the Parkway Centre, Coulby Newham. Our trees will be set up to allow for social distancing.

We know every moment counts and we want to make the festive period as special as possible for the people who will be staying with us during this time, and provide our support to local families spending their last Christmas together. We couldn’t do any of this without your kind generosity. Thank you.

Thank you to our sponsor of the appeal, Colin McGinley Independent Family Funeral Service
