Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw invites all ages to remember a loved one at our Light Up a Life carol service at Carlisle Cathedral.

To celebrate 50 years of hospice care in the UK there will be a golden theme at this year’s event. People are invited to bring a bauble or tree decoration to place on the hospice Christmas trees to represent a loves one and watch the trees light up in their memory.

Each tree decoration will be brought back to the hospice chapel and placed on the Compassion tree for the festive period.


The special carol service will include the Cathedral Carliol Choir and guest speaker Rev. John Bell.
