Light Up A Life 2021

Here at Woodlands Hospice we know that Christmas can be a time for togetherness which can be a difficult time if you have lost a loved one, or if you cannot be with someone you love.  Our Light up a Life appeal gives you the opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one by dedicating a light/s on our Christmas tree in December.

Our beautiful Christmas tree at the Hospice is truly an amazing sight. Seeing it adorned with hundreds of lights and knowing that each light is dedicated to someone has such a special meaning. Every light that shines out from our Christmas tree is a heartfelt tribute to those who are missed but definitely not forgotten. For each light you dedicate you will receive a special card containing the name of your dedication. 

Click the button below to make your dedication. Please note, you will also be able to view and purchase our Light up a Life merchandise via the same link below. If you wish to purchase merchandise and wish to make a dedication, please ensure you indicate your dedication amount alongside your merchandise selections.

By dedicating a light to your loved ones, you will not only be celebrating their life, you will be helping us to support our patients and their families at a time they need it most.  

Our Virtual Tree

You can leave a personalised message and a photo of your loved one. You can also create your own 'supporter tree' with a unique link to share amongst friends and/or colleagues that allows you to fill the tree with dedications. This is a great option for those of you with large families or for businesses who wish to support our campaign.


If you would like to write a message that will hang on one of the hospice Christmas trees inside the hospice building, you can do so by downloading our bauble template here and posting it back with your written message to: FAO Fundraising Team, Woodlands Hospice, AUH Campus, Longmoor Lane, L9 7LA.

Light up a Life services:

Although there have been many restrictions lifted we are still limiting visitors to the hospice to ensure we keep our patients and their families safe so we have once again had to make the difficult decision to cancel the outdoor Light up a Life switch-on service within the hospice grounds.

However, we were delighted to still be able to hold our services in the community at St Michael's Church in Blundellsands, St Andrew's Church in Maghull and this year we also held a third community service at Holy Name Church in Fazakerley. We also held and recorded a Christmas light switch on with a small number of hospice staff and volunteers and we invited the granddaughter of one of our patients receiving care on our ward to swithc on our Christmas lights within our hospice grounds. You can view our services and light switch on events in the video below:

Thank you for your ongoing support in helping Woodlands Hospice Light up a Life appeal, which will help us to provide our very special care for our patients and their families this Christmas.
