Light Up a Life

Remember a loved one this Christmas by supporting St Margaret of Scotland Hospice with a donation to our Light Up a Life appeal. Thousands of lights will be shining on a Christmas Tree in the grounds of the Hospice from Sunday, 3rd December 2023 at 6:30pm until Saturday, 6th January 2024.

Make your Dedication

Whilst your donation will be sponsoring a light for a loved one, your support will help the Hospice provide care for patients living with life-limiting illnesses.

"Bereavement and grief touch all of us, with us often feeling our loss more at Christmas-time. We hold our Light Up a Life Service to remember quietly and in a special way, those we love and miss at this time of year."
