BUTTERWICK Hospice will hold a celebratory event this weekend to help people remember their loved ones.

Light up a Life will take place on Sunday, December 10 at 6pm in the grounds of the hospice on Woodhouse Lane in Bishop Auckland.

The event welcomes everyone, not just those affected by the hospice, to congregate around a fresh spruce Christmas tree, take part in a Christmas carol service and watch as the lights are switched on in memory of loved ones.

Festive refreshments will be served and there will also be craft stalls.

To attend, contact Helen on 01388-603003 or helenkirby@butterwick.org.uk
