In Memory



We’re very sorry, but with the current conditions and the expectation that the snow will continue for a few hours yet, causing travel conditions to become difficult, we’ve had to cancel today’s Light Up a Life event in Nottingham City Centre (this includes both the walk and the service) for the safety of our attendees, volunteers and staff.


Christmas is a special time of year, join us to remember your someone special

Light up a Life is the time we come together each year to remember and celebrate loved ones who are no longer with us. For every person, there may be a special memory we hold, a special reason why we want to remember them and celebrate the joy their lives brought to us.

Join us for our Light Up a Life remembrance event on Sunday 10th December in Nottingham City Centre, which will start with a torch-lit walk from the Brian Clough statue in Old Market Square around 4.15pm, to the Robin Hood statue at Nottingham Castle.

This event, open to the whole community, will include the lighting of the Nottinghamshire Hospice Christmas at Castle Gate and is a wonderful opportunity to gather together, sing traditional carols and remember the lives of those no longer with us; loved ones forever in our hearts and in our memories. Our Christmas tree will shine bright with hundreds of lights over Christmas, dedicated to the lives and memories of those precious people.

Help make memories that will last a lifetime – dedicate a light on our Christmas tree

On the darkest of days and the bleakest of nights, our patients and their families feel the reassurance of hospice care in the familiar, comfortable surroundings of their own home. Nursing care and compassionate support is given to each and every patient to make their final weeks and days as comfortable as possible.

Throughout the festive period, the care provided by our Hospice at Home nurses will give patients and their families the chance to spend their final Christmas making precious memories at home together.

By dedicating a light on the tree and making a donation, you’ll give hospice patients and their families the chance to create their own precious memories this Christmas.

You can dedicate a light to anyone you choose. They do not need to have been cared for by the hospice. As part of your dedication, you can choose to include some words of love or favourite memories and have them included in our Book of Remembrance which will be on display at the event and at the hospice.

To dedicate a light in memory of someone special to you, please fill in the form below.

Dedications made after 12 noon on Thursday 7th December will be available to view at the hospice on Woodborough Road during opening hours from w/c 11th December.
