2017/12 Light up a Life for Beaumond House Newark at Newark Castle
Our annual Light up a Life service for Beaumond House Newark takes place on Thursday 21st December from 6pm at Newark Castle, Nottinghamshire, and this year, like last year, incorporates Carols in the Castle. It’s free to attend and everyone is welcome. There will also be other festive activities taking place at Newark Castle during the day – further details will be announced soon.
Shine a light for someone you love this Christmas – all it takes is a donation to Beaumond House Newark’s Community Hospice to dedicate a Christmas light to that special person. If you make a gift of £5 or more you will receive a remembrance lantern, and a beautiful silver Light up a Life pin badge. All names and dedications will be entered in our Book or Remembrance which will be on display at Beaumond House. Christmas is a special time of the year, but for anyone who has lost a loved one it is often a time of mixed emotions. Our Light up a Life appeal will go towards funding our specialist end of life and palliative care.
