Members of Manchester Survivors Choir, a group who are all survivors of the Manchester Arena attack, will be singing at one of our special Light Up a Life services in Heald Green this December.
The service is an opportunity to remember your loved ones by dedicating a light in their memory on one our Christmas trees, and including their name in the Book of Honour.
This year the hospice will once again be paying tribute to those who lost their lives in the 2017 terror attack, by dedicating a light on a Christmas tree in memory of each of the victims and naming them in the Book of Honour.
Thousands of people have taken part in the Light up a Life appeal over the last twenty two years by dedicating a light on one of our Christmas trees across Greater Manchester in honour of their loved one. Our Light up a Life services are always really moving, and it’s incredible to see the lights on our trees and to know that each one represents someone very special.
As a Manchester-based charity, we were all deeply affected by the tragic events that took place at Manchester arena, as was everyone across this amazing city. We’re honoured to be able to pay tribute to those who lost their lives as part of our special Christmas appeal.
I’d like to say a huge thank you to the Manchester Survivors Choir for agreeing to sing this year, and to the other choirs and speakers that will be attending the other Light up a Life services in December, at our hospice sites in Little Hulton and Heald Green, Manchester Cathedral and St Peter’s Church in Hale. Eamonn O'Neal, Chief Executive
We are delighted and honoured to be invited to sing at this event. The 22 people who lost their lives in the Manchester Arena attack are always in our thoughts and hearts and we will be proud to sing in remembrance of them and the family members of those attending this special event. Cath Hill, Manchester Survivors Choir
