Light up a Life online service

Reflect on the year and dedicate a light to someone you love this Christmas

December 6, 2020 | 1:00pm - 11:00pm

Our Light up a Life appeal gives you the opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one. This year, it’s also an opportunity to mark something close to your heart.

You’re invited to remember a loved one, whether they have been a patient at St Ann’s or not, or someone who just can’t be with you at this time of year. Or you might light a light for the other losses you have felt this year, like occasions you couldn’t celebrate as planned or time lost with family and friends.

Join our service here at 1pm, Sunday 6th December.

If you’d like to light a candle at home during our virtual service, you can also buy Light up a Life candles from our shops or through our eBay shop online.

If you have any questions about the Light Up A Life Appeal or your dedication, please contact our fundraising team on 0161 498 3631 or

Thank you to everyone who contributed songs, messages and spoke at this year’s online service, we’re so grateful for your support.

The Decibelles Choir will also be holding a special Christmas concert at 7.30pm on Friday 11th December on their YouTube page. You can support their concert JustGiving page online too.

Bereavement support

Many of us welcome talking to others when a person who is close has died – and usually rely on friends and family. But sometimes it can help to talk to someone who is not so closely involved. This is where we can help.
