PEOPLE in Droitwich will be able to remember a lost love one as part of the annual St Richard’s Hospice Lights of Love campaign.
In the weeks leading up to Christmas, there will be six special services, including one at Droitwich Spa Methodist Church at 7pm on December 4, carols at the hospice itself in Worcester on December 19 and two services at Worcester Cathedral at 2.30pm and 7pm on November 22.
For a donation to the hospice, residents can dedicate a light to their relative who has passed away.
The dedicated names will be displayed around St Andrew’s Spire at Worcester Cathedral and in a book of remembrance at Droitwich Library.
Supporters can dedicate and donate online with the added benefit of their personal message being displayed on the St Richard’s online Christmas tree.
Claire James, St Richard’s fund-raiser, said the charity was grateful for the support, adding the community services were deeply moving and comforting for the people who attended.
“Many people joining the services have had family or friends cared for by the hospice.
“We find each service unites people in their shared experience of missing a loved one, while providing support and solace through lighting a candle and taking time to reflect.”
Last year more than 2,600 dedications were made, raising £55,134 for the hospice.
