Hospice’s Light up a life celebrations to continue digitally

Lindsey Lodge Hospice in Scunthorpe isn’t going to let the pandemic prevent it from running its highly indicated Light up a Life celebrations.

The hospice is inviting people across North Lincolnshire to Light up a Life and remember a lost loved one.

The service, which is open to anyone who has lost someone, will be held virtually on Friday 4 December and will be live streamed from the Hospice memorial garden.

“Christmas can be a very difficult time for anyone who has lost a loved one, particularly this year, which has been incredibly challenging for everyone,” said Lindsey Lodge Chief Executive Karen Griffiths.

“As we enter the festive season, we are reaching out to our local community and inviting them to join us in our Light up a Life activities.

“Our service this year will be held virtually and we are aiming to capture the very special essence of Light up a Life, to give people the opportunity to honour those they have lost in a safe and socially distanced live ceremony in the comfort of their own home.”

Lindsey Lodge’s live service will take place via Facebook live on Friday 4 December, where the trees will be lit. Each light represents a life, and will remain lit throughout the Christmas period.

Karen added: “Once people have dedicated a light, they will receive two tree decorations, one to hang on of our trees in our memorial garden throughout the month of December.

“The second decoration can be used to decorate trees at home. We’re encouraging people to turn on their Christmas lights at home simultaneously with the lighting of the Hospice tree.”
