Hundreds of lights dedicated to someone special will shine out at North London Hospice next month. The magnificent horse chestnut tree outside the hospice, in Woodside Avenue, will once again twinkle with fairy lights to remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones. This year the ‘Light up a Life’ ceremony will take place on Sunday 25 November at 4.30pm in the hospice grounds. During the ceremony people of all ages and faiths will join together in a multi-faith service. The lights will then sparkle every evening from 4pm to 9pm until early January. North London Hospice fundraising manager Judi Guy said: “Light up a Life is one of our best-loved and most meaningful events. Last year more than 1,000 people attended the ceremony. It represents a time to be comforted and to share hope with others. Our event is open to all, not just those who have experienced hospice care. Anyone can sponsor a light by making a donation, no matter how big or small, to the hospice.” The names of everyone remembered and celebrated will be entered into a ‘Book of Lights’ which will be kept on display in the hospice Room of Quiet at both sites in Finchley and Enfield. All of the money raised will help North London Hospice to continue to provide its care and support to patients, their families and friends in the boroughs of Enfield, Barnet and Haringey. To sponsor a light please call 020 8446 2288 or visit the hospice website www.northlondonhospice.org
