The annual Light up a Life campaign gives the opportunity to dedicate a light on the special Light up a Life tree in the hospice garden, which will shine brightly in memory of those dearly missed.

All dedications will be added to a book of memories which will be available to view on their website and at their remembrance services from the end of November.

There is no minimum amount to dedicate a light and all donations will help patients and their families receive dedicated and loving care from Overgate Hospice when they need it most.
