PEOPLE are being invited to remember their loved ones during a special campaign this Christmas.

Lights of Love provides a unique and special opportunity for people to come together at services in Bromsgrove, Redditch and Rubery.

People will be given the chance to dedicate a light to a loved one on special Christmas trees as well as have their names included in special remembrance books.

The idea comes from The Primrose Hospice.

Emma Williams, fundraising manager at the charity, said: “Lights of Love is a very special campaign as it gives everyone an opportunity to remember a loved one.

“People are invited to dedicate a light to on one of our Christmas trees in Bromsgrove, Redditch and Rubery.

“Their names are then placed in remembrance books around our trees for family and friends to visit throughout the festive season.

“In return, we ask for a donation to Primrose Hospice, allowing the hospice to continue its vital work support patients with life-limiting illnesses, and their families."

She added: “Last year we were thrilled to raise over £37,000 which helped us to continue to offer our outstanding care and support free of charge to those that need it.”
