Light up a Life Light up a Life services Light up a Life services Join us at 4pm on Sunday 1 December at Mountbatten Hospice where our tree will be lit, and we will light candles in memory of all those we have loved and lost. Around 400 people attend the outdoor service where carols are sung, readings are shared, and prayers are said. After the service, people gather in the John Cheverton Centre to enjoy a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie. There is also the opportunity to view the Book of Remembrance and to write a personal message and add it to a dedication tree inside the building. Due to the popularity of the event, this year there will be a free park and ride service from Seaclose Recreation Ground (PO30 2QS) to Mountbatten Hospice between 3pm – 6pm. Spaces are limited so be prepared to find alternative parking, if required. Only disabled parking will be allowed in the Hospice car park. You are also welcome at any of the special Light up a Life services taking place across the Island during December, details below. If you are not able to attend the service you can still take part by making a donation to dedicate a light, in memory of your loved one this Christmas.
