St Richard’s Hospice is inviting residents to dedicate a Light of Love to celebrate and remember all those who hold a special place in our hearts.
For almost two decades St Richard’s has held Lights of Love events in the Worcestershire community. This year, they will still reflect on the wonderful people who have touched our lives, particularly those who are loved and no longer with us. But the coronavirus pandemic will make this year’s Lights of Love slightly different, but just as heartfelt.
Lights of Love will shine out from the St Richard’s Christmas tree at St Andrew’s Spire, Worcester, during the festive season and dedicated names will be there for all to see as usual on banners around the city landmark.
However, rather than gathering together at services around the county, St Richard’s will be asking you to join them at a virtual Lights of Love event from the comfort of your own home.
This unique virtual event in the hospice Sacred Space will be available to view on the St Richard’s website http://www.strichards.org.uk on Friday, 20th November from 7pm.
The hospice Chaplain Clare Griffiths, will lead this 15-minute service, dedicating the Lights of Love, lighting a candle and reflecting on those we cherish. You will also see the Lights of Love sparkle as they are switched on at the tree in St Andrew’s Spire, Worcester.
Make a Dedication

Your dedicated name(s) will be placed together on display around St Andrew’s Spire, Worcester.
The dedicated name(s) will also be placed in the Worcester News on the 24th December, 2020 if you choose, and in the hospice thanksgiving book and on a virtual Christmas tree. If you dedicate and donate online you have the added benefit of being able to include a message and photo on the virtual Christmas tree which you can also share with family and friends.
Your support is greatly appreciated by the hospice and by the patients and families, particularly at this time of uncertainly for us all.
