Light Up A Life - St Cuthbert's Hospice

Sunday 12 December at 7:00 PM

Let your loved one’s memory shine brightly this Christmas. This annual service, organised by the St Cuthbert's Hospice, is an opportunity for anyone in our community to come together, whether they have a connection to the Hospice or not, to remember and celebrate the lives of those we love.

Find out more about the St Cuthbert's Hospice service on their website.

By donating to St Cuthbert’s Hospice through Light up a Life, the name of your loved one will be included in our Books of Remembrance which will be dedicated at the cathedral service. You will also receive a personalised remembrance card and a special keepsake, and the names of all those remembered will also be added to a special digital candles page on the St Cuthbert Hospice website.

Please book a ticket
