light up a Life, Dorothy House service of light

Thursday 6th December

Doors open 5.30pm Service starts 6pm

Every year, Dorothy House runs a Light up a Life appeal. We would like to invite you to sponsor a light on our Christmas tree at Winsley. The tree will sparkle with hundreds of lights, in tribute to those we remember at Christmas, and will be lit 24 hours a day from Monday 26 November until Sunday 6 January (though it will be best viewed as light falls from around 4pm).

We are also holding ‘Services of Light’ across the communities we serve.

Our annual Services of Light, part of the Light up a Life appeal, have become a special part of the Dorothy House calendar. Held in the weeks running up to Christmas, the services take place in venues across the area served by the Hospice. The services all start at 6pm, last around 45 minutes and include readings, carols and the opportunity to light a candle in memory of a loved one. The services are open to everyone.


This event is free.

If you would like to take part this year by sponsoring a light, you can make a donation in memory of a loved one by either:
