At St Margaret’s, Christmas is about creating special memories with the people we love the most. But we also know that this time of year can feel daunting, especially if you’ve lost a loved one.
Light up a Life is our annual community-wide celebration of loved ones who are no longer with us. Each year, we gather at Christmas time to remember the precious moments we were so glad to have with them.
Join us this winter to celebrate the people you cherish and dedicate a star in their memory. Read on for further details of how to join our service, make your dedication and support local patients and families this Christmas.

Mark’s wife, Julie, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2021. Mark cared for Julie at home, along with the help of their children and St Margaret’s community team. When her condition got worse, Julie went into the hospice for additional care. Mark shares how St Margaret’s helped Julie and their family to make this difficult time more bearable, so that they could focus on making the most of the time they had together.
