Hundreds of twinkling lights will be lit in memory and celebration of loved ones this festive season, in the annual St Richard’s Hospice Lights of Love campaign. For almost two decades St Richard’s has held Lights of Love church services and events in Worcestershire, except last year when the Covid pandemic.
From the Autumn, people will be invited to donate to the care of St Richard’s and dedicate a Light of Love to celebrate or remember someone special. Lights will shine out from the hospice Christmas tree at St Andrew’s Spire, Worcester, during the festive season and dedicated names will be published on banners around the city landmark.
We are hoping, presuming that covid restrictions continue to relax, to hold our two Lights of Love events on Friday, 19th November 2021 at Worcester Cathedral at 2.30pm and 6.30pm for 7pm. The evening service is then followed by a light switch on at the Spire.
More information will follow in due course and you can follow us on social media
