A thousand people joined us outside the in-patient centre in Finchley last night to watch our beautiful horse chestnut tree lit up with hundreds of twinkling white lights in memory of their loved ones we’ve cared for.

 

Our annual Light Up A Life ceremony is a wonderful opportunity for people of all faiths and none to come together to remember those who have passed away.

 

Guests heard poignant and uplifting readings from many of our chaplaincy team and our Hindu Chaplain Deva Pandit Samaroo performed the Hindu ritual of light, known as Aarti. He was accompanied by singing from Unnati Dasgupta.

 

The crowd also enjoyed a live performance from the choir of the local Broadlands Junior School who sang ‘This is Me’ from The Greatest Showman.

 

Jonathan Barr gave his heartfelt thanks to North London Hospice as he shared his experience of care for his mother, who passed away at the hospice in 2015.

 

To keep the cold at bay the Mill Hill Rotary Club served mulled wine, minced pies and fresh doughnuts to the crowd.

 

Thank you to all those who attended. We hope you enjoy the selection of photos from the evening.
