Light up a Life 2018

St Leonard’s Hospice would like to invite you to dedicate a light in memory of a loved one or as a gift in honour of a friend or relative.   

Our Christmas trees in St Helen’s Square in York, Selby Abbey, the Hospice grounds and Easingwold Market Place will all bear hundreds of twinkling lights, each one representing the life of someone special.

Each name will be recorded in our Book of Honour which will be placed in the Sanctuary at the Hospice and also in Selby Abbey and displayed over the Christmas period. The lights will shine until Twelfth Night. 

PLEASE NOTE: To ensure your names are in the Book of Honour at the Services, dedications need to arrive 1 week beforehand. Dedications received after this time will be added in to the back of the book.

The trees will be illuminated at very special Carol Services:
  • Easingwold Market Place on Wednesday 28th November at 7:00pm
  • St Helen’s Square, York on Sunday 2nd December at 6:00pm 
  • Selby Abbey on Sunday 9th December at 4:00pm. 
These services are led by the Hospice's Spiritual Care Lead, David, and we will also be joined by Shepherd Group Brass Band playing carols. You are warmly invited to join us at any of these services.

For more information please contact Sue Edwards on 01904 777 777 or email Sue.Edwards@stleonardshospice.nhs.uk.
