Aimee Low, communications co-ordinator at St Cuthbert’s Hospice said: “As the days grow shorter and winter approaches, this season can be a poignant time for those who are missing a friend or a loved one.

“Light up a Life offers people the opportunity to celebrate and remember someone special to them, at this festive time of year.

“It’s chance for the local community to join together and support each other, as well as their local hospice.”
