Festival of Light 2013
About the Festival events programme, and how to dedicate a light in honour of a loved one.
Every year we invite supporters to dedicate a light in our stunning display of tiny white lights, to celebrate the life of a loved one.
Our 2013 Festival of Light runs from 1 December until Twelfth Night. The switch-on ceremony took place on Sunday 1 December and there's still time to dedicate lights.
How to dedicate a light
Anyone can dedicate a light at any time to celebrate the life of someone close to them, young or old, healthy or ill, living or deceased. It's easy, and you can celebrate the lives of as many people as you like.
All the names of the people whose lives are celebrated are entered in a commemorative book kept in our hospice chapel.
All the money received from donations comes to St Luke's.
Our services to patients are free, and only 31 per cent 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 £22.16 for one hour’s care for a patient in the hospice
- Two home visits by a Specialist Community Nurse cost £52
- It costs £726 to run all St Luke’s services for one hour
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.
