Every year, Martin House celebrates Light up a Life, where we take a moment to remember loved ones who are no longer with us. Everyone is welcome to remember someone in this special way, whether or not you have a connection to Martin House. We hope that taking part in Light up a Life will give you bring you some peace and comfort this winter.
You can make a dedication in our online Book of Dedication here. Write a message and include a picture of your loved one, and share your dedication with family and friends if you wish. Anyone who makes a dedication on our website will receive a Light up a Life card via post, on which you will be able to handwrite your dedication at home and keep, along with a candle to light in memory of your loved ones. In place of our Light up a Life services, which sadly cannot safely go ahead this year, we invite you to join us in a moment of remembrance at 7pm on Thursday 10th December. Together, we will take some time to celebrate the lives of those we love and miss by lighting a candle in our own homes. These lights, although not in the same place as one another this year, will shine together and remind us that we’re not alone, and that our loved ones will never be forgotten. We hope this will be a way for us all to come together to celebrate life and bring some comfort and peace when we can’t be together in person.
