For the last 18 years a large Christmas tree has been placed in the grounds of Jospice and illuminated with 2,000 shining lights. This is the 'Light up a Life' tree – and each light is placed on it in memory of the loved one of a friend or supporter of Jospice.
This year Jospice is hosting its now annual Light up a Life service of carols and remembrance on Sunday 13 December, led by Bishop John Rawsthorne, a cousin of the late founder of the hospice movement, Father Francis O’Leary.
The service will start with carols at 4pm at the hospice on Ince Road, Thornton, and will include the lighting of the Christmas tree. To dedicate a candle go to www.jospice.org.uk or call 0151 924 3812. Anybody making a dedication will be acknowledged with a card and the name of their loved one will be entered in the Light up a Life 2015 book of remembrance.
