Christmas is a time when we meet up and spend time with our families and friends. It is also a time when we value the memories of those who are no longer with us and celebrate how much they will always mean to us. This year, the Longfield Christmas tree will be decorated with hundreds of lights, each one dedicated to a loved one and representing a twinkling star.

We invite you to dedicate a ‘star’ light on our tree and our online sky of stars display, to celebrate the life of someone you hold dear.


Dedicate a star light today and make a donation to Longfield.

  • By dedicating a star light, you will help someone in Gloucestershire to be supported by our Hospice at Home nurses, surrounded by their family at home in their final days.
  • By dedicating a star light, you will help a bereaved family to receive counselling at what can be a very difficult time for remembering a loved one.
  • By dedicating a star light you will join together with other people to remember.

You can choose to dedicate a star light for each of your loved ones or on behalf of a friend or family member – a gift to remember someone special. If you choose we can also add your loved one’s name to appear in the ‘sky of stars’ animation on our website, so you can view this with your friends and family at any time. The ‘sky of stars’ will be available to view on our website until the 18th January 2019.

You can also join us for our Light Up a Life celebrations, which will be held at Longfield, Minchinhampton, on Sunday 2nd December. We will be holding two celebrations, one starting at 2pm and one at 4pm. The celebrations offer time to reflect, and to honour loved ones who are no longer with us, at this special time of year. Our Light up a Life celebrations are free and everyone is welcome. Places are limited, so please click here to book a place if you wish to attend.
