Light Up A Life

Thursday 19th December 2019 at St Mary Magdalene Church, Newark

Christmas is a special time of year, but for many who have lost a loved one, it can be a time with both sad and happy memories.

In lighting up a life at Christmas, we hope that this time of reflection will bring comfort to you.


This year we have changed the format of our Light Up a Life event in Newark.  We invite you to join and gather with us at Beaumond House at 6.00pm on Thursday 19th December.  From Beaumond House we propose to walk together to the Parish Church, Newark.  We plan to offer you the opportunity to light a lantern for our collective walk to the church, where we will hold our LUAL Service. 

This element of the evening will start at 7.00pm and so you are welcome to join us for this aspect only if you prefer not to walk.


If you wish to Light up a Life and make a donation, please CLICK HERE where you can make your dedication and donation, or alternatively complete the form here and return to us. Your message will then be entered and displayed in our Book of Remembrance from 1st December to twelfth night.

Making your donation online really helps us and we do encourage everyone to look at this option when making any donations


We would like to invite everyone who donates to our appeal and attends the event, to write a message on dedication tag which can then be hung on the Light up a Life Christmas tree which will be lit during the evening.

Light refreshments will be available.


All donations of £5 and over will receive a special Light up a Life badge. In order to receive your lantern, memory tag and pin in advance, and have your dedication included in the Book of Remembrance, we must receive your donation and dedications by 15th December at the latest.
