Light up a Life

A chance to remember someone special

Coming together in remembrance and celebration

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.

On Thursday 16 December we will host an online gathering of celebration and our Gallery of Memories is open for dedications to lost loved ones, however the deadline for the book of memories has now passed. Simply scroll through this page for more information.

After a difficult and unprecedented time in which so many loved ones were taken from us far too soon, it is now more important then ever to support each other and cherish those we have lost.

Unfortunately our Cathedral service for Light up a Life will no longer be going ahead this year, due to the recent increase in local Covid-19 cases.


Join us online for a Night of Celebration

On Thursday 16 December at 7pm, we will air our Light up A Life broadcast on both our Facebook page and this page. This will be a combination of hand-picked readings, poems and music 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.


Gallery of Memories

The Light up a Life Gallery of Memories is an online gallery where you can upload photos and stories to remember your loved one and share them with friends and family who live further away.

Books of Memories

The Hospiscare Books of Memories are physical books that include dedications from people who have lost someone they love, regardless of whether that person was looked after by Hospiscare. The deadline for the book of memories has now passed, however you are welcome to place a dedication in our online gallery of memories, if you wish.   We'll keep this page updated with further details should any other local churches feel happy to display copies of the book as well.


Lights Shining in Memory

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