Light Up a Life Appeal

Various dates in December
Across North Devon

Christmas is a special time of year, and for many, often a time to reflect and remember family and friends who are no longer with us. Children’s Hospice South West’s Light up a Life Appeal is for everyone, not only for families who have been helped by Children’s Hospice South West. By donating in memory and/or attending one of our Light Up a Life services, it’s your opportunity to remember and celebrate the life of someone dear to you, young or old, who lit up your life.

Make a donation in memory of a loved one

When you donate in memory of a loved one their name will be placed in our Light Up a Life Book of Remembrance as a lasting tribute which can be viewed at Little Bridge House in Fremington and our Light Up a Light services. A ribbon will also be tied to our remembrance star at Little Bridge House which can beviewed at any time over the festive period.

Your donation and support really will make a difference and add light to the lives of more children with life-limiting conditions and their families facing an uncertain future. Simply complete our online form to let us know the names of those special to you.
