Beaumond House invites you to shine a light on the life of someone you love this December. Light up a Life is an uplifting and meaningful opportunity to remember family and friends while supporting the wonderful care provided by the Newark hospice.
“We were so lucky to have been cared for by the team at Beaumond House. It meant Marian could spend her final few weeks at home.” Les Reid, Farndon.
With Christmas just around the corner, Light Up a Life, provides the chance to gather as a community and light candles in memory of loved ones.
“This is my first Christmas without Arthur. Light up a Life gives me time to reflect and a chance to honour the memories we made.” Pat Goddard, Besthorpe.
This year, we are offering more ways that you can get involved:
Make a mark in the Book of Remembrance. You can make a personal dedication to a loved one which will be displayed in the Book of Remembrance. Dedications are open to everyone, not just those with a connection to Beaumond House. When you donate a minimum of £5 per message you’ll be able to purchase a limited edition feather Light up a Life pin badge for an extra £1. To make a dedication, please visit here or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The day therapy patients at Beaumond House have been busy making fabulous feather-filled baubles to hang on your Christmas tree. Made with love, these ornate decorations can be personalised and cost just £5. To order yours click here. Baubles are personalised and made to order; you will be able to collect them at Beaumond House reception, one of our charity shops or one of our Light up a Life services.
Brighten up the Beaumond House virtual tree. For the first time, you can dedicate a light on a virtual Christmas tree. Once you’ve chosen your light, you can add a photograph of your loved one and make a donation to support Beaumond House.
We would also love to see you at one of our Light up a Life services at which there will be readings, songs, and time for reflection. You’ll be given the chance to hang a memory tag on one of the Christmas trees at each church and light a candle in memory of your loved one.
The services are as below:
Monday 5th December 7pm St John the Baptist Church, Collingham
Tuesday 13th December 7pm The Church of St Mary Magdalene, Newark
Thursday 15th December 7pm Southwell Minster, Southwell
