Light for a Life

Light for a Life

Event date: 02 October 2017

‘Light for a Life’ is your opportunity to make a heart-felt dedication to those you love or have loved.

A beautiful and personal way to simply say 'Thank You'.

How often have you forgotten, or left it too late, to say 'Thank You'?
How often have you wished you hadn't done so?
How often have you found it difficult to do so?
How often would you like to turn the clock back?

Light for a Life lets us make a dedication to celebrate special occasions, new life, birthdays and anniversaries or simply say a heart-felt thank you to partners, family or friends who mean so much to us.  Perhaps someone who has supported us in difficult times - or happy ones.

Whatever your personal reasons, make 'Light for a Life' dedications on the Christmas Tree erected by Wigan & Leigh Hospice.  All dedications will also be entered in a 'Book of Dedications' as a permanent tribute to the special people in your life.

Light for a Life is your chance to demonstrate the love you have for people who are, or have been, important in your life.  

There is no limit to the number of dedications you make. We simply ask for each one to be treated as a separate dedication.

Switch-on Ceremony

The switch-on Ceremony will be on Tuesday 5th December at the Hospice.  However dedications continue to be added until the twelfth night after Christmas.

Book of Dedications

Dedications are also entered into a bound, hard-backed book.  When printed, it will be on permanent display in the Hospice Chapel, along with every other book of dedications since Light for a Life began in 1998. 

When and how can I make dedications?

From October  - you can make dedications by simply downloading a dedication form which will be available here. Please complete a separate form and donation for each dedication and forward to the Hospice with your donation.

Forms can be also obtained at the Hospice, any Wigan & Leigh Hospice shop or many other locations around the Borough.
