Light Up a Life 2017
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.
