Light up a Life

Light up a Life is a Scotland-wide campaign that incorporates community events and appeals that are organised by hospices in the run up to Christmas (usually late November and into December).

These events help families and friends to come together to remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones at what can often be a very poignant time of year. The events are open to anyone, not just people whose loved one was cared for by a hospice.

Hospices will often hold various in-memoriam activities and events as part of the campaign, including Light up a Life musical concerts, lighting candles, writing a message in memory of a loved one or purchasing Light up a Life badges.

Please look out for the Light up a Life events and activities that your local Scottish hospice is organising.  We would love you to take part!
