About this Appeal

Remember someone special this festive time.

A personalised bauble on a Christmas tree, a glowing tea light in the hospice gardens and the opportunity to reflect in music, words and even silence. During the festive period Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw will be providing you with the opportunity to remember a loved one.

Our annual Light Up a Life services provide support, comfort and compassion to thousands of people and we will continue to do this for many years to come. To celebrate 50 years of hospice care in the UK there will be a golden theme at each event this year.

During November and December, the hospice would like to invite the community to three special events at Carlisle Cathedral, Penrith Methodist Church and in the hospice grounds.

Each Light Up a Life service is unique. They all provide you with time to reflect in music and words whilst remembering and celebrating the lives of loved ones.

Although many people will remember someone who has been cared for at Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw, you can choose to remember anyone. They don’ need to have been cared for at the hospice they could be someone who just can’t be with you at this time of year.

Every year thousands of people help to raise tens of thousands of pounds in aid of the hospice as they remember a loved one during Light Up a Life.

This year’s Light Up a Life services will take place at:

  • Penrith Methodist Church – Sunday 26 November at 3pm
  • Hospice Grounds Gathering – Sunday 3 December at 4.30pm
  • Carlisle Cathedral Carol Service – Friday 9 December at 7.30pm
