Light Up A Life

Light Up A Life


Highbridge Street,
Waltham Abbey,


Join us to remember and celebrate someone special…
Light up a Life is a very special annual event, full of the warmth and love that St Clare Hospice has been bringing to local people’s lives for over 25 years. It is a chance to pause and remember the lives of our loved ones, in the company of others who understand.
Our Waltham Abbey event will be held at Waltham Abbey Church on Thursday 6th December 2018 at 7.00pm.
Please note, parking is available outside Abbey Church (free for 2 hours) or in the Cornmill car park or the Abbey Gardens car park.
We appreciate Christmas can be a really emotional time for those who have lost loved ones. Our Light up a Life events are here to help celebrate lives that have been lost. Remembering a loved one at a St Clare Light up a Life event is a great way for friends and family to come together and remember the joy that those close to our hearts brought to our lives.
Join us
Just like our care, participation in Light up a Life is free of charge. However, if you are able to make a donation alongside your personal dedication, it would be so appreciated by our patients and their families.
Each light on the Tree of Remembrance at St Clare Hospice is dedicated to the memory of a special person and their name is also inscribed in our Book of Remembrance.
Registration to dedicate a light to your loved one, or inscribe a message in our Book of Remembrance, will open later in 2018.

Admission/price: Participation in Light up a Life is free of charge. However, if you are able to make a donation alongside your personal dedication, it would be so appreciated by our patients and their families.
