Light up a Life

Remember and celebrate your loved ones during the festive period…

Light up a Life is a chance for you to remember and celebrate the lives of your loved ones by dedicating a light this Christmas. Your light will shine brightly on the beautiful Christmas trees at St Gemma’s Hospice, throughout the festive season.

Please check back for details of the 2021 ceremony.

Light up a Life Online is an opportunity for people across Leeds to come together and celebrate those special people we are missing. We can all draw strength and comfort from one another and know we are not alone, as we take time to remember those who mean so much to us.

St Gemma’s usually holds remembrance events at the Hospice and the Immaculate Heart Church for people to attend in person. In 2020, the ceremony was broadcast live from the Hospice.

With your help we will be there for many more patients and families facing the toughest of times…
