Light up a Life with Weldmar

Light up a Life with Weldmar

Weldmar Hospicecare’s Light up a Life service returns in person to Bridport. 

Light up a Life is an opportunity to remember those closest to us, whether they were cared for by Weldmar or not.  When you dedicate a light, it will be placed on our stunning Christmas tree next to Ivy House and will shine bright until the 12th night. 

Your loved one’s name will be included in Weldmar’s 2021 Book of remembrance and you will also receive a wooden star to keep at home, or to hang on the tree at the service.

A service will be held at Groves Nurseries, Bridport on Friday, December 3 at 6.30pm

It will feature traditional carols, readings and a period of reflection. For those who cannot attend, the service at Weldmar’s inpatient unit on Tuesday, December 7 at 6.30pm will be streamed on Facebook and YouTube.

Aimee Overington, spiritual and counseling lead for Weldmar Hospicecare, said: “Christmas can be a difficult, isolating and lonely time for people experiencing loss and grief. This is an opportunity to come together with others to remember those who are important to us, whether this is the first Christmas without them or they have been missed for some time.”

Weldmar asks for a donation for every dedicated light. This helps the charity fund its services, ensuring that it can continue to care for adults with a life limiting illness, and their families, in Dorset.
