Weston Hospicecare will hold its Light Up A Life services to enable people to remember their lost loved ones this Christmas.
The charity’s annual appeal sees hundreds of people honour lost family members and friends over the festive period.
Three church services will be held by Weston Hospicecare’s chaplain, Karen Murphy, at St Paul’s Church in Weston on December 7 at 1.30pm. 4.30pm and 7.30pm.
The services will look a little different this year due to the pandemic. Face coverings will be worn by all those attending and tickets will be limited to enable social distancing.
Weston Hospicecare wants to ensure as many people can take part as possible, and the services will also be streamed on the charity’s website. Event manager Grace Dibden: “We know that this year is unlike any other and that a lot of our fantastic supporters will not be able to attend a service this year.
“The 7.30pm service will be streamed live on our website. It will then be made available to watch at a later date.
“Christmas is a hard time for those missing a loved one. Their absence will be deeply felt, whether the loss was recent or several years ago.”

The services will be open to advanced ticket holders only and limited to approximately 50 guests per service.
Weston Hospicecare is limiting the number of people from each group attending to two people to ensure as many families as possible can honour their loved ones this winter.
The tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Taking part in the annual Light Up A Life appeal gives people the chance to remember the life of someone close to them while helping to provide care for another family facing the most difficult of times.
To make a Light Up A Life dedication in memory of a loved one to support Weston Hospicecare, supporters can light a lantern and make an entry to the book of remembrance. Supporters are asked to make a donation in exchange for their dedications. They can be arranged by calling 01934 423960.
