Weldmar’s Light Up A Life 2020
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.
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 2020 Book of Remembrance.
Watch the service here
Support following the service:
If you feel you would like to talk to someone after watching this service, please call 01305 215300. This is being offered by our Family Support Services team until 22nd December, from 9am to 5pm.
Visit your local Light Up A Life tree:
Although we won’t be able to hold the services, we still have Light Up A Life trees at venues across Dorset. You can visit your nearest tree and hang your wooden star on it with a message or the name of who you want to remember.
Here are the participating venues – click on their star to visit their website.
Remember a loved one with your own Light Up A Life tree
There is an opportunity for you to create an entire Light up a Life tree dedicated exclusively for your loved one. Once you have created your tree, you can ask friends, family members or colleagues to dedicate their own light on your tree, share a photo or a memory, maybe in lieu of giving presents or cards this year.
Not only will you have your own personalised tree, you will also be helping us continue our care throughout this Christmas time.
Read Sheila’s Story
Some people might be dedicating one light on one of our Light up a Life trees this year, but for Sheila Fielding, she will be dedicating four, in memory of those who she has loved and lost over the last 23 years.
Our Light Up A Life services have always been special to Sheila, but this year will be particularly poignant, and she has kindly shared her story about how Weldmar has been there for members of her family.
