Light Up a Life

Christmas is a special time to share magical moments with those you love most, but it can be a very difficult time if somebody you love has died. Remembering and celebrating their life is a beautiful way to keep your loved one a part of your family tradition.

Rotherham Hospice invites you to Light Up a Life and remember your loved one by dedicating a Light Up a Life Star. For a donation of your choice, you will receive two beautiful stars – one to keep at home and one to hang on the Rotherham Hospice Christmas Tree. You are welcome to visit the Christmas Tree in the Hospice’s reception area throughout December.

Dedicate your star by!/, calling 01709 308900 or visiting Rotherham Hospice on Broom Road, S60 2SW, Monday to Friday, 8.00am to 4.00pm.
You are also welcome to attend a moving Light Up a Life memorial service, kindly sponsored by Oxley and Coward Solicitors. All services at 4.00pm as follows:

  • Thursday 7th December – Rotherham Hospice Gardens
  • Saturday 9th December – Rotherham Hospice Gardens
  • Sunday 10th December – Rotherham Minster

There will be music, readings, candle lighting and refreshments provided. All are welcome. Your loved ones do not have to have been cared for by Rotherham Hospice to come and celebrate their life.
