Our annual Light up a Life services provide families and friends the chance to remember and celebrate the lives of their loved ones in the run-up to Christmas.


Hundreds of people gathered outside our three hospices in Coventry, Rugby and Warwick for the services which gave everyone time for reflection as passages and poems were read. Royal Spa Brass played at the Coventry and Warwick events, and Dunchurch Brass played at the Rugby service. And our Myton choir performed at all three events.

Each service also featured some very special readings from Paige Ireland and Warwick Wills and a song performed by Charlotte Traynor.


Our beautiful Christmas trees, where people hung their tags with messages to loved ones, were generously provided by F Weetman & Sons and have helped to make all of our hospices look suitably festive!
