Light up a Life

Lighting up memories for those we miss

Light up a Life is an opportunity for our community to come together to remember those who are sadly no longer with us, whether they were cared for by Weldmar or not. Our Light up a Life services combine readings, hymns, and carols supported by local community musicians and singers, bringing people together during a season when feelings of loss are strongest for us.

You can make a donation and dedicate a light (or lights) in memory of someone special, and in return you will receive a special card, an eco-friendly wooden star to hang on your local Light Up A Life tree (or your own tree at home), plus all names will be recorded in our 2021 Book of Remembrance.

You can make your dedication of a light at the bottom of this page.
