'Light up a Life' campaign to help poorly Yorkshire youngsters

Light up a Life

Published at 7:02am 3rd December 2017.

Families are getting a chance to remember their loved ones whilst supporting Martin House Hospice Care for Children and Young People with its annual 'Light up a Life' campaign.

In return for a donation, people can make a dedication and will receive a personalised 'Light up a Life' keepsake card.

Their named person will also appear in Martin House's Books of Dedication, which go on display at St Mary's Church, Boston Spa, Beverley Minster, St Mary's Church, Whitby, and Holy Trinity Church, Skipton, between Wednesday 6 December and Saturday 6 January.

Jodie Shepherd, Director of Fundraising at Martin House, said: "As the year draws to a close, it's a natural time for us to remember loved ones who are no longer with us.

"With a 'Light up a Life' dedication, you can celebrate a life whilst making a difference to Martin House children and young people, and their families."

Dedications which are made online are also included on Martin House's virtual memory tree on its website, as well as in the Books of Dedication, which are updated until Friday 5 January.

Martin House will also hold two 'Light up a Life' services, with one at St Mary's Church in Boston Spa on Tuesday 5 December and the other at Holy Trinity Church in Skipton on Wednesday 6 December.

The services, which both start at 7pm, include carols and readings, and a time for reflection.

During the services, the Martin House Christmas tree will be lit, with each light shining for someone special.

You can get more information about the charity at www.martinhouse.org.uk
