Light up a life is a special annual remembrance event supporting Martlets. It provides an opportunity for those who have experienced loss to come together in a shared spirit of love, commemoration, and hope.

Join us on the grounds at Martlets for an inspirational ceremony led by our Chaplain, Nicholas Roddis:

  • Listen to music and a beautiful reading celebrating the lives of those we will miss at Christmas time
  • Light up your own candle and join us as we switch on the lights in our garden 
  • Reflect, share, and take some refreshment together

"Our family have been attending the Light up a Life events for many years. It has brought enormous comfort and strength to us, and we always find the event a calming experience and a chance to reflect in this busy and troubled world." 

Even if you can't join us you are invited to make a dedication in memory of a loved one. We'll add it to our Light up a Life Book of Remembrance, which you'll be able to see when visiting the hospice or here on our website. 

Make a dedication and a donation to Light up a Life.
