Christmas is a special time of year, but for many who have lost a loved one, it can be a time with both sad and happy memories. In Lighting up a Life at Christmas we hope that this time of reflection will bring comfort to you.
Dedicate a message to a loved one:
You can send a message and a donation
using our form, which is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us on 01636 610556. These will also be available from the website shortly.
Alternatively, you can leave your dedication in the 'Leave a Message' section on our JustGiving page below when making your donation. Your message will then be entered and displayed in our Book of Remembrance from 1st December up to twelfth night.
We also invite you to join us again at Newark Castle on 21st December, where we will hold our Carols at the Castle service which will include Light up a Life. The evening will commence at 5pm. Our carols, readings, time for reflection and remembrance will begin at 6pm. This year, we are bringing an additional element to Light up a Life. We would like to invite everyone who donates to our appeal and attends the event, to bring a photograph of their loved one(s) along with a message to hang and display on our memory wall of light during our service*.
Please note; This year we will not automatically be sending lanterns out to everyone this year. We do know that for some these are an important element to Light Up a Life so if you would still like one please do ensure you tick the box on the donation form to tell us. These will be available shortly.
*If you bring a photo, we recommend that if possible you laminate it or place it in a protective cover and that you collect it at the end of the evening.
If you would like us to send you a lantern, please email us on email@example.com or call 01636 610556 with your address. All donations of £5 and over will receive a special silver Light up a Life pin badge. In order to receive your lantern and pin in advance, and have your dedication included in the Book of Remembrance, we must receive your donation and dedications by 15th December at the latest.
