Hospiscare’s Light Up a Life services will make a return to East Devon next month.

The service, formerly known as the Tree of Light, will include a mixture of carols and readings.

A service will be held in St Paul’s Church in Honiton next Wednesday (December 2), starting at 7pm.

Axminster’s service will take place at St Mary’s Church on Monday, December 7, from 7.30pm, and in Seaton, a service will be held at St Gregory’s Anglican Church, on Friday, December 11, from 7pm.

Hospiscare’s Louise Beeken said: “We know that at this time of year, many people’s thoughts turn to those no longer with us.

“In recent years, Hospiscare has devoted itself to helping people honour the memories of departed friends and family with a series of uplifting services of remembrance. We welcome people to attend any service they wish and as part of this people can honour someone who has died by dedicating a light on the Hospiscare Christmas tree and placing a dedication in our Book of Memories.

“The book can be viewed during the various services and at the cathedral. A light will then shine on our Christmas tree on Exeter’s Cathedral Green from early December.

“The lights will be lit every evening at dusk until twelfth night. You can remember anyone you wish, they do not have to have been cared for by our nurses to be remembered in this way.”

To make a donation and dedicate a name, visit any Hospiscare shop, or call the charity’s fundraising team on 01392 688020. Entries for the Book of Memories close on Wednesday, December 9.
