for families facing terminal illness
Lights of Love

Lights of Love


At ellenor, we know that for many, Christmas brings memories of loved ones who have died. Our uplifting Lights of Love services offer all  families – including those who haven’t been supported by ellenor’s services – an opportunity to pause at this busy time of year and remember those unable to share the festive season with us. By donating to the Lights of Love appeal, you can dedicate one or more lights on our Christmas tree in memory of your loved one. It’s a special way to commemorate their life whilst helping other local families coping with terminal illness this Christmas. The name of your loved one or loved ones will be displayed in the annual Lights of Love book, which you can view throughout the year at ellenor Gravesend.

To dedicate a light, please complete the form on this page. You can also make your dedication by calling our Supporter Care team on 01322 626509.


You are warmly invited to join us at ellenor Gravesend on Saturday 14 December for a moving afternoon and evening of music, readings and reflection. This year to meet demand two services will take place, the first service at 4pm and the second at 6pm. If you would like to view the dedicated names please arrive half an hour before the service begins, you can also light a candle and write a message on a star. You are welcome then either to take it home or hang it on our indoor tree, in remembrance of your loved one.

There will also be an opportunity to treat yourself to a delicious mince pie and warming beverage.

Please note the services will take place inside the Hospice.
