Light Up A Life 2023
At Woodlands Hospice we know that Christmas can be a very 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 site. 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.
By dedicating a light to your loved ones, you will not only be celebrating their life, but you will also be helping us to support our patients and their families at a time they need it most. Families like the Currie family.
Click the button below to make your dedication. Please note, you will also be able to view and purchase our Light up a Life keepsakes via the same link below. If you wish to purchase items and wish to make a dedication, please ensure you indicate your dedication amount alongside your purchase selections.

Our Virtual Tree
As part of our Light up a Life Campaign you can dedicate a light on our Virtual Christmas tree without leaving home. Dedicate a light on our virtual tree and leave a personal message when you donate the amount of your choice. You can also upload a photo if you wish to do so. Once the light has been dedicated the message can be viewed when hovering over the light on the tree allowing you to share the reasons why you have donated with others. There will also be an opportunity to dedicate the Start at the top of the online tree for a higher donation option. Please click the button to dedicate a light on our 2023 Virtual Tree.
We are also delighted to offer our range of Light up a Life merchandise which is available to order alongside your dedication. The prices listed include postage.
Light up a Life service:
This year we will focus on the Hospice event so will not be holding any of the community church services and do hope that you will come along and join us when the Currie Family will switch on the Christmas tree lights at the Service on Sunday 3rd December at 6.00 p.m.
Our Book of Life will be on display from 4.00 p.m. and then immediately following the service and published on our website in the New Year. In addition to our usual ‘traditional’ mince pies we will also have a selection of hot food and drinks, Christmas cards and festive items to purchase along with ‘Letters from Santa’ activity for the children, so families are very welcome.
Please Note: only dedications received by Monday 20th November are guaranteed to appear in the Book of Life for viewing at the Light up a Life Service on Sunday 3rd December.
