Our annual Light up a Life service is one of the most meaningful activities in our Hospice calendar.

We know that for many of you Christmas can be a lonely and apprehensive time, filled with mixed emotions.  This might be your first or thirtieth Christmas without your loved one by your side and we want you to know that we are here to help and support you through the festive period.  Together, we want to help you to remember times gone by and to keep at the forefront of your mind the moments that you shared together and the lights that filled the room.

Our Light up a Life Appeal, gives everyone in our local community the chance to remember their loved ones with light and love, and to give thanks for the compassionate care that the Hospice continues to deliver in this, our 30th anniversary year. 

To make your own dedication and donation in memory of your loved one please visit our online dedication page, https://hokh.light-up-a-life.org/, where you can leave a message and post a picture.  To make a dedication and donation over the telephone call Claire Ashby on 01622 795695.

When you choose to remember the life of your loved one as part of our Light up a Life Appeal you are helping us to continue to care for patients and their families in your local community, this winter, offering them comfort and reassurance at what can be one of the darkest times in their lives.

We invite you to join us for a service of remembrance and reflection, to light a candle and dedicate a star in memory of your loved ones at The Friars, Aylesford Priory on Sunday 5 December, at 4:30pm.  From the moment that you arrive at The Friars you will find a tranquil and calm setting, joining others who are remembering their loved ones and coming together to share stories and moments of quiet reflection, whilst listening to beautiful seasonal music and readings. 




We are carefully monitoring national and local guidelines and ask that if you would like to attend please let us know, so that we can keep you updated on our plans if we need to make changes.  The service will be recorded and available to watch afterwards on the Hospice website and social media channels. 

If you would like to come along to our Light up a Life service, please call Claire Ashby, Supporter Care Manager, on 01622 795695 or email claire.ashby@hokh.co.uk to reserve your place.
