PEOPLE are being invited to celebrate the life of a loved one at a special event this weekend.

Butterwick Hospice is holding Light up a Life in its grounds on Woodhouse Lane, in Bishop Auckland, on Sunday, December 10, at 6pm.

Light up a Life helps everyone celebrate together, not only people who have been affected by the hospice, but anyone remembering a loved one.

The Christmas tree lights will be switched on and there will be a carol service and craft stalls. Mulled wine, tea, coffee and mince pies will be served

To attend, call Helen on 01388 603003 or email
