Light up a Life

Light up a Life

A chance to remember someone special

Coming Together

Christmas is a special time of year when many people come together with family and friends to celebrate. At Hospiscare, we are aware that for those adjusting to life without a loved one, it can be a bitter-sweet time. As with all events in 2020, our Light up a Life services will not be taking place but that doesn’t mean we can’t come together to remember those we love.

In such unprecedented times it is more important than ever to support each other and cherish those we have lost.


Lights Shining in Memory

Our Tree of Light will shine with lights in memory of our loved ones in front of Exeter the Cathedral for you to visit throughout December.


Join us for a Night of Celebration

On Thursday 17 December at 7pm, we will air our Light up A Life broadcast on our Facebook page and on our website. This will be a combination of hand-picked readings, poems, music and carols to celebrate those we hold dear to us. Toward the end of the broadcast, we will all light a candle in our homes as we remember our loved ones.

Light up a Life Gallery of Memories

This year we will share a Light up a Life Gallery of Memories. This is an online gallery where you can upload photos and stories to remember your loved one and share with friends and family who live further away. If you wish, your dedication can also be included in the Book of Memories.
