Light up a Life, Light up a Memory

Christmas is a very special time of year for many of us, and the staff and volunteers at the Hospice work extremely hard to make the festive period a memorable and enjoyable time for everyone in our care.

Christmas at the Hospice starts with our annual Light up a Life Appeal, when we ask you to dedicate a light on our Tree of Remembrance in memory of a loved one. Our lighting ceremony draws thousands of people each year and everyone is welcome!

This event has now passed, thanks to everyone who attended and donated. You can still donate to the appeal, and the tree will remain lit until the New Year.

You can Light up a Life by making a donation online here or by calling our Fundraising Team on 0131 551 1381.

We are incredibly grateful to everyone who supports our Light up a Life appeal which enables us to provide specialist care and support to our patients and their families, across Edinburgh and the Lothians. Thank you.

This year you can also Light up a Memory on our interactive memory map! Simply think of place that holds special meaning for you and a loved one. Place a marker on our online map and leave your memory or message.

Your memory will remain lit up throughout the festive season and beyond. Visit your special place whenever your want, share it with family and friends and invite others to add their own memories.  www.lightupamemory.com
