Light up a life

As the Hospice commemorates its 30th Anniversary, we would like to remember and celebrate the lives of all those patients we have cared for during that time.

Please join us to remember and celebrate the life of someone special to you this Christmas as part of our Light up a Life campaign.

You can dedicate a light on our ‘virtual’ tree in memory of a loved one .

Over the last 30 years, the Hospice has supported Tania Burgess, who tragically has had to deal with the death of her mother; father and daughter Kerry who passed away age just 34.

“I know from my own devastating experiences of loss over the last thirty years how absolutely vital the Hospice is to all those affected by a life- limiting illness”.

At Hospice of the Valleys, we understand the devastating impact grief can have on those who are left behind when someone dies and its why, this Christmas, we are extending a very warm invitation to you and your family.

Please join with us to remember and celebrate the life of someone special to you as part of our annual Light up a Life campaign

Light up a Life is a wonderful way for our community to come together to remember, reflect and celebrate the lives of those loved ones we’re unable to spend Christmas with this year.

As part of your dedication, you can also write a message, add a photo, make a donation to the Hospice and also share the dedication with family and friends so they can add to it.

As well as remembering your loved ones, your kind donation will help ensure we can be there for the next thirty years to support people like Tania, who was struggling to see her way out of the overwhelming darkness she was facing after the death of so many close family members.



“Kerry was more than just my daughter, she was my best friend. I’ll be remembering her, my mother and father this Christmas via the Light up a Life campaign and will be dedicating a light on the virtual tree to each of them.

I will be forever grateful to all the staff at the Hospice for the care and support they have given my family and me over the last thirty years. I really do not know how people would manage if they didn’t have the Hospice to turn to”
