‘Lights of Love’ is free to attend and is open to all, with any donations given helping Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice to continue providing care for local families.
Elise Hoadley, Director of Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice said, “Christmas is a special time when many of us remember and celebrate the lives of those we love and miss. Lights of Love is a way of remembering loved ones and also offers the chance to raise funds through donations so we can provide incredible care for those who need us throughout the year.
“It is a moving and memorable way to come together, remember, celebrate and give thanks for the lives and treasured memories of family and friends. Everyone is welcome to join us.”
