Remember a loved one this Christmas and help raise money for both North Devon hospices

Light Up a Life is a chance to remember someone you love this Christmas.

Now in its 21st year, the annual appeal raises funds for both North Devon Hospice and Children’s Hospice South West, and is run in partnership with the North Devon Gazette.

It is now a Christmas tradition in the area, with hundreds of local people making a donation in memory of someone who is no longer with us.

Your donation will help provide vital hospice care to those who need it this Christmas.

You may also want to watch:

The name of the loved one you are remembering will also appear in special books of remembrance, which are on display at a series of special Light Up a Life services held throughout North Devon in the run up to Christmas.

You are welcome to attend any of these services and light a candle in memory of someone special.
