Light up a Life

Remember your loved ones this Christmas

Whoever you are remembering, whether young or old, you can pay tribute to them through our Light up a Life Appeal, by making a kind donation.

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 a way to remember the lives of your loved ones through celebration. Your donation, in memory of a love one, will help us continue our care for over 500 children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

As a lasting tribute your loved one’s name will be written in our Light up a Life Book of Remembrance and can be viewed at our Little Bridge House children’s hospice. The Book of Remembrance will also be displayed at our Light up a Life services this Christmas.

To make a tribute donation to our Light up a Life Appeal simply complete our online form.
