Dedicate a light to remember someone special
Festival of Light is loved by St Luke's supporters and for many, it is the start of the festive season. It's a time for us all to come together to remember and celebrate the lives of our loved ones.
We’re hoping that this year will feel extra special as this Festival of Light marks the start of our 50th anniversary year and we're inviting you to celebrate with us by dedicating a light and making a donation to your loved one.
Just £34 could contribute towards a patient’s meals for a week of stay on our In Patient Centre.
Dedicate a light
Join us at our Festival of Light event
We know how much our supporters look forward to our Festival of Light event at the hospice. We are delighted to let you know, that preparations are underway to welcome you back this year on Sunday 5 December from 5pm-7pm, to enjoy food, music and of course gather together to see our light switch on, in the true Festival of Light spirit.
Safety is, and always will be, our main priority and we’re busy planning the safest way for us to hold this event, without too much compromise, to still offer our supporters the chance to remember loved ones together. We fully expect that there may be changes in the national guidance and restrictions between now and 5 December 2021. If we need to change our plans in any way or cancel the event, we will contact you.
To let us know if you can join us, please complete your dedication to receive a link to attend the event.
50 years of St Luke's
St Luke’s has come a long way in the 50 years it has been caring for terminally ill people in Sheffield, thanks to the support of people like you. Your support can make a difference to families like Jess and Dave.
For Dave Stewart, Festival of Light is an important way to honour the memory of his wife, Jess, after he proposed on Christmas Day 2020 when Jess was in her final stages of her battle against cancer.
Festival of Light 2021 is proudly supported by Henry Boot
