Light up a Life 2017

Make a Dedication

Dedicate a light in memory of your loved ones on the ‘Tree of Light’ growing here in the beautiful Hospice gardens. The beautiful lights on the tree will be lit up at the Light up a Life celebration at Rowcroft in December. These lights will shine throughout the Christmas and New Year holidays – representing and celebrating each life.

Every dedication made will also be inscribed into our ‘Book of Light’. The Book of Light will be available to view at all of the Light up a Life celebrations around South Devon. In January a Book of Light will then be placed at all of the venues and can be viewed throughout the year. The full list of venues can be found on the Celebrations page.

Write the name of the loved one(s) you’d like to remember on the front of the Celebration Star and on the reverse, tell us – in a few words – about your favourite memory of them. All stars will be collected together and hung on our Christmas Tree at the Hospice. You can download a printable celebration star here, alternatively please get in touch and we can post a star to you.

For your dedication to be in the Book of Light at the Light up a Life celebrations please make your dedication by Monday 13th November. We will continue to inscribe names up until 15th December for the final Book of light which will be displayed in all the venues frm the end of January 2018.

Every day this Winter we will be caring for local people and their families – both in the hospice and in their own homes. We ask that when making a dedication you consider also supporting your local hospice.

£25.82 is the cost of two-hours of nursing care provided by a member of our Hospice at Home Team. This could enable a patient with a terminal illness to stay at home with their family at such a precious time of year.

£55.56 is the cost of three hours of specialist nurse’s time, providing care to the patients staying on our Inpatient Unit.

Whatever you can manage will help pay for vital care for someone near you who really needs it this Christmas.

Please click the ‘Make a Dedication’ button below, or get in touch and we can send a dedication form to you. Please get in touch with Linda Pearce for any queries or requests, via email linda.pearce@rowcroft-hospice.org.uk or call (01803) 217405.
