St Margaret’s Hospice Light Up a Life 2023

St Margaret’s Hospice Light Up a Life Service 2023

The service will be broadcast on our website – on the main Light Up a Life page.

 St Margaret’s Hospice is inviting people across Somerset to come together and be part of this year’s Light Up a Life campaign.

Traditionally, Light Up a Life is the time when the hospice invites the local community to gather in churches across the county for a simple service of remembrance. But, after more people were able to access the service in previous years when we were forced to stream it, the hospice has now decided to keep the virtual format.

As well as the service in December, the hospice is inviting families across Somerset to share the names of their loved ones in remembrance and celebration on our Virtual Night Sky where members of the community can dedicate a star in memory of a loved one.

For more information about Light up a Life or to make a dedication in memory of someone visit:  

If you have any questions about your dedications or our virtual service, please give our friendly supporter care team a call on 01935 709485, or email [email protected]
