Tynedale Hospice at Home launches its Light up a Life campaign

Hospice launches annual Light up a Life remembrance campaign

With the festive season not far away, Tynedale Hospice at Home has launched its Light up a Life campaign.

Through Light up a Life, Tynedale Hospice at Home invites people to remember a loved one who has died by making a donation in their memory.  In return for a donation – no matter how large or small – you will receive a card with your loved one’s name (s) inside and a memory star to write your own message on.  This can be brought to one of the Hospice’s dedicated Light up a Life services or used to hang on your own Christmas tree at home.

Charlotte Pearson, Fundraising Manager for Tynedale Hospice at Home, said: “Christmas can be a particularly difficult and poignant time for people who have lost someone they love and Light up a Life is all about providing the opportunity for people to remember them.

“As part of the campaign, Tynedale Hospice at Home is hosting three Light up a Life remembrance services where there is an opportunity for quiet reflection to remember those who have died.  These services are family-friendly and are open to everyone, regardless of whether you have experienced the services of Tynedale Hospice at Home – everyone is welcome.”

The Light up a Life services are taking place at:

Hexham Abbey – Saturday, 1 December at 3pm
Prudhoe Methodist Church – Tuesday, 4 December at 6pm
St Mary’s Church, Ponteland – Saturday, 8 December at 3pm

All funds raised will support the work of Tynedale Hospice at Home which provides hospice nursing care to people in their own homes, Family Support Services and a Hospital Transport Service to people living in Tynedale, West Northumberland, Ponteland and the surrounding areas.

To make a donation to Light up a Life, or to find out more, please call the Fundraising team on 01434 606 444 or visit

Tynedale Hospice at Home is grateful to Dodds of Hexham Funeral Services for sponsoring this year’s Light up a Life campaign.
