Light Up A Life Service – A Special Broadcast 2021

East Cheshire Hospice is inviting the public to join its Light Up A Life service from the comfort of their own homes again. The special Christmas broadcast will be streamed live on the Hospice website and  Facebook page on Saturday, December 4, at 3 pm.

The annual service is by tradition an opportunity to remember lost loved ones, though everyone is welcome. The remembrance event was held at St Michael and All Angels Church, Macclesfield, until two years ago.

A Tree of Memories will be on display in the Hospice Chapel. The symbolic tree is decorated with personalised baubles dedicated by supporters to someone special.

Bethan Wade, Challenge Events Co-ordinator, said: “The broadcast will be a little different than our usual Light Up A Life service, but will feature music, readings and staff from around the Hospice and will be suitable for people of all faiths and none.

“In another year of uncertainty, let’s join together to remember those who mean the most.

“While nothing compares to gathering in person, this year we felt it would be responsible to celebrate virtually once again.”

A recording of the service will also be available. A Light Up a Life pack can also be ordered via the website for a donation.

The pack includes a candle, LUAL bauble, two festive tea bags, a mince pie recipe and a vegan and gluten-free mince pie recipe.
