People across West Norfolk are being invited to remember their loved ones at one of four special services being organised by officials from the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House.

The events, which will all take place next month, are being held as part of the national Light Up A Life campaign to honour the memory of relatives or friends during the run-up to Christmas.

Louise Clark, the hospice’s bereavement co-ordinator, said: “Christmas can be a poignant time of year if someone close to you has died.

“We hope our Light Up A Life services offer a special way of remembering and reflecting on the lives of those whose memory we treasure.

“Our bereavement team will be at all the services to offer support should you wish it.”

Services are scheduled to take place at King’s Lynn Minster on Sunday, December 6, at 3pm and the Sandringham Visitor Centre on Monday, December 7, at 5pm.

Similar events will also take place at the hospice itself in Hillington on Thursday, December 10, at 5.30pm and at the St Edmund’s Church in Downham on Sunday, December 13, from 3pm.

Supporters will be able to light a candle in memory of their loved ones during any of the four services and have their names placed into the orders of service and a book of remembrance, which will be on display at the events and at the hospice itself throughout December.

People can also dedicate a light on the hospice’s Christmas tree at the Hillington site.
