Memories burn bright at inspiring Ulverston service

RESIDENTS shone lights to remember their loved ones at an emotional service which saw hundreds of people turn out to support a local hospice.

The Light up a Life service was held at St Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Ulverston on Sunday, with a congregation singing carols and reading poems.

The event was organised by St Mary’s Hospice and involved people sponsoring lights for a Christmas tree in memory of loved ones, many of whom may have died at the hospice.

The service was led by Father Flannery, and featured songs from St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.

The lights dedicated to deceased relatives will remain illuminated at the hospice over the festive period. Hannah Hillen, from St Mary’s Hospice, said: “Christmas is a traditional time of celebration, but it also can be an emotional time for many of us.

“Our hope is that the service will offer some solace and an opportunity [for people] to gain some strength.” Light up a Life is in its 13th year and is one of the most important events in the hospice’s calendar.
