Christmas is a time of celebration and sharing, but it can also be a difficult time of year when you are parted from your loved ones. The Light up a Life appeal gives those who have lost loved ones the opportunity to come together to remember them.

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

If you have dedicated a Star already but it is not yet displaying, please bear with us as we update the display! All names will be present by Friday 6th December at the latest.

Dedicate a star today and make a donation to Longfield. By dedicating a star....

  • 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.
  • You will help a bereaved family to receive counselling at what can be a very difficult time for remembering a loved one.
  • You will join together with other people to remember.

You can choose to dedicate a star for each of your loved ones or on behalf of a friend or family member – a gift to remember someone special. We will 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 from 18th November 2019 until the 9th January 2020.

To dedicate your ‘star’ light please click here, or telephone 01453 886868. Please leave your loved one's name in the comments box when making your donation, along with a short message if you wish.

Celebrate a life and dedicate a ‘star’ light today.

We are also holding two Light up a Life Celebration Events at Longfield, on Sunday 8th December at 2pm and 3.30pm, where people can come together to remember loved ones who are no longer with us at this special time of year. To book to attend either of the Celebration events please click here.
