Light Up A Life - Penzance

Beautiful Books of Remembrance

Light up a Life marks the beginning of the festive season at Cornwall Hospice care and is an uplifting and peaceful way in which to remember the lives of loved ones at this special time of year.

We look forward to returning again for our service in Penzance which features some lovely singing performed by the children from Pensans School. At the end of our traditional service we invite everyone to stay for refreshments and to view the book of remembrance. There will also be card stars available to write a personal message if you wish and to hang on the Christmas tree. The Penzance book will then be available at St Julia’s Hospice.

Time to remember

Remember your loved ones with a dedication in one of our books. The books of remembrance will be at each celebration service venue and you can choose where you would like their names to appear.  If you are unable to visit your nearest venue, your loved one’s name will be included in our online tribute, available here on our website towards the end of November.

With your support

We can continue to care for adults with terminal illnesses in Cornwall – completely free of charge. For more information please contact the fundraising team on 01726 66868.

As with all our remembrance events Light up a Life is open to everyone, there does not need to have been a connection with our hospices.

FAQs

Can I look at my page after the service?

The books will be available to view directly after the service and then will be taken to St Julia’s Hospice where they can be viewed in the run up to Christmas.

Can I bring friends and family to the services?

Of course, everyone is welcome.

Why support Cornwall Hospice Care?

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 12th March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 32 shops.

£56 could pay for three hours of unrivalled specialist care from one of our nurses, helping patients who are terminally ill.

£37 could pay for one Lymphoedema appointment to ease swelling and symptoms for someone with cancer.

£23 could pay for an hour with our bereavement counsellor, supporting families  through the loss of a loved one.
