Christmas is a thought provoking and reflective time for many who have lost a friend or family member.
Or it can be a very special time to celebrate an event like the birth of a child, a marriage or another happy occasion.
To celebrate lives and remember loved ones, Blythe House Hospice is inviting you to dedicate lights in support of this year’s Light up a Life appeal.
This appeal, generously sponsored yet again by Tarmac Buxton Lime and Cement, will see starry white lights shining in and around the hospice from 3.30 - 11.00 every evening from 20th November throughout the festive period.
The Light up a Life festival will be launched on Sunday 20th November at 3.30 pm at Blythe House where there will be opportunities to dedicate lights and buy Christmas cards and gifts.
A short service by the Rev’d Richard Mottershead at 3.45 pm will be accompanied with performances by Tideswell Male Voice Choir and followed by the switching on of the lights.
Families and friends will be welcome to visit Blythe House before, during, and after the festival to reflect and write messages in the Light up a Life book at the Hospice.
To dedicate a light please contact Blythe House Hospice on 01298 815388 for more details.
