Light up a Life

Every year, Dorothy House runs a Light up a Life appeal. We would like to invite you to sponsor a light on our Christmas tree at Winsley. The tree will sparkle with hundreds of lights, in tribute to those we remember at Christmas, and will be lit 24 hours a day from 29 November until 7 January (though it will be best viewed as light falls from around 4pm).

We are also holding ‘Services of Light’ across the communities we serve. Links to these events can be found below.

If you would like to take part this year by sponsoring a light, please download the form below, and return it to us with your donation. We will send you a card with the name or names of those you wish to remember.

Last year, we received a total of £68,000 from our Light up a Life appeal, and with your generosity and support, we hope to exceed this sum this year, raising still more for patient care.
