Light up a Life

Remember someone special and support your local hospice.

Each year over 10,000 local people remember their loved ones by making a dedication on our Light up a Life tree; a Teesside tradition for more than two decades.

Light up a Life gives you the opportunity to remember a loved one at Christmas time. The festive period can be difficult if you have lost someone special and we hope this appeal can provide some comfort and peace throughout this time.

By supporting our Light up a Life appeal and making a donation -

  • A personalised star will be placed on the official Light up a Life tree in memory of your loved one, shining brightly in the Hillstreet Shopping Centre from 9th November until 18th December 2019.
  • Your loved one’s name will feature in the Light up a Life Book of Memories. This will be available to view at Teesside Hospice and at the special Light up a Life Christmas service on 19th December (details to follow).
  • You will receive an invitation to the launch of the Light up a Life tree.
  • You will receive a special thank you card and a star to hang on your own Christmas tree at home.

We also have Light up a Life trees at the Parkway Centre, Coulby Newham and Teesside Crematorium, Acklam Road for you to visit and remember your loved ones.

We know every moment counts and we want to make the festive period as special as possible for the patients and families who will be staying with us during this time. We couldn’t do any of this without your kind generosity. Thank you.

Please make your donation and dedication by 8th November to have your loved one's name featured in the book of memories.

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