Our annual Services of Light have become a very special part of the Dorothy House calendar. Held in the weeks running up to Christmas, the services take place across the area served by the Hospice. The services all start at 6pm, last around 45 minutes and include readings, carols and the opportunity to light a candle in memory of a loved one. All our Services of Light are open to everyone, not just those who have experienced our care, so please feel free to invite friends, colleagues and neighbours.

This year we are introducing a daytime service at Dorothy House Winsley on Sunday 24 November at 3pm. This service will include the switching on of the lights on our beautiful Christmas Tree. This service will be an outdoor service around our tree. We need to have a wet weather provision (just in case) so we will have to limit attendees to this service only. If you would like to reserve a place(s) to attend this service, please email email@example.com or phone 01225 721 480. There is no need to book for our evening services.
Our tree can be viewed from Monday 25 November until Monday 6 January.
Many people also like to support our annual Light Up A Life Appeal by sponsoring a light on our tree in memory of a loved one. Anyone can sponsor a light – you don’t have to have a connection with the Hospice.
