Dedicate a star to celebrate the life of someone special this festive season.

Our Light up a Life appeal and celebration event, held within the Hospice grounds, provides individuals and families with a special opportunity to remember and celebrate the life of a loved one or someone special that you miss, love or cannot be with right now by dedicating a star in their memory this festive season.

Our special commemorative service offers time to reflect and share memories with those closest to us. During the service you will be able to enjoy Christmas carols and music performed by the fantastic Ooh Mama Ladies Choir and Basingstoke Silver Band, whilst, enjoying a warm glass of mulled wine alongside a delicious mince pie.

Our Light up a Life appeal and service is open to everyone, not just those who have been touched by our Hospice care. Please remember to wrap up warm if you plan to attend the service as we expect it to last around 40 minutes and we will be outdoors.

Limited parking will be available at Parklands (opposite the Hospice entrance), which is less than a 5-minute walk away from the event. We kindly ask you to consider car sharing or using public transport where possible to alleviate as much congestion around the site as possible.

Throughout the pandemic and into the future, people haven’t stopped needing us and we aren’t going to stop being there for them. Your support and filling our online sky with stars dedicated to your loved ones this festive season will help us to do this. Create your personalised star with a photo and message for someone special to view online any time you wish.

If you wish to kindly donate and dedicate a star in memory of a loved one or someone special this festive season, you will receive a long-lasting wooden star in the post to write the name of your loved one and place on your Christmas tree, mantelpiece or in a special place to you (a minimum donation of £10 applies).

***Please note, for dedications to be included in our Order of Service, which will be available to download on our website from Tuesday 7th December, we must have received them by midday on Monday 22nd November. Please email or call 01256 848848 if you are unable to access this and we will post one out to you***

We would also love to see as many stars as possible coloured in and displayed in your windows to brighten up the wintery months. Download your star below.
