Every year, we invite our supporters to dedicate lights in a stunning display at the hospice to celebrate the lives of loved ones.

Our 2014 Festival of Light runs from Sunday 7 December to Tuesday 6 January 2015.

How to dedicate a light

To make a light shine for someone you love, just complete our online form, and please donate what you can. Feel free to celebrate as many names as you wish - they don't have to have been patients at St Luke's.

A light will be dedicated to each person you celebrate, and their names will be entered into the Commemorative Book, which is displayed in the hospice chapel for a whole year. You will also receive a dedication card to keep, bearing their name.

All the money received from donations comes to St Luke's.

Our services to patients are free, and less than 29 percent of our funding comes from the NHS. Every year, Festival of Light donations play a vital part in helping to fund our expert patient care.

  • It costs £23 for one hour’s care for a patient in the hospice
  • It costs £32 to provide a face-to face bereavement counselling session for a relative who has lost a loved one at St Luke's
  • It costs £61 for each home visit by our Specialist Palliative Care Community Nurses

So please do support our Festival of Light, and help us to care for our patients and their families at the time when they need us most.

To make a donation now and celebrate lives, please visit our online donation form.

This year’s Festival of Light is generously supported by Insight UK, a global provider of Information Technology hardware, software and service solutions. With a Sheffield-based head office, Insight UK is proud to continue supporting the work of St Luke's across the local community.
