Light Up A Life 2020

This is a special time on the Dorothy House calendar. We’re so pleased that we’re able to come together, as a community, and celebrate our loved ones.

Each year, through the wonderful support of our local community, our Light up a Life appeal delivers invaluable funds towards patient care.

This year, the pandemic has sadly increased isolation and caused an unprecedented decline in fundraising income. Despite this decrease in our income, the demand on our services continues to grow making this year’s Light up a Life appeal more important than ever.

With your generosity, we hope to continue to raise much needed funds together, both in memory of those we hold dear, and for those currently needing our support.

We are so grateful for your ongoing support and we very much hope that you will feel able to support the Hospice by sponsoring a light.


Thank you for donating to this year’s Light up a Life appeal. Your ongoing support is so very welcome and will ensure that new and current patients and families will continue to receive the care they need.

This year we will be hosting two daytime Services in the grounds of Dorothy House, Winsley on Sunday 22 November at 12 and 3pm (government guidelines permitting). This will include the switching on of the lights on our beautiful Christmas tree. Our Winsley Services are now sold out but our 12 noon service will also be available through a livestream on the day for those unable to attend the physical event. We hope this enables us all to come together, even at a time when we can’t physically meet.
