Tagged with: corporate Events Help the Hospices has launched its annual ‘Light up a Life’ campaign with a new visual identity and, for the first time, a national advertising and PR campaign and a new website. Corporate support for the campaign comes from Abbey and HSA, part of Simplyhealth Group.Run by and for the UK’s 240 local hospices, Light up a Life is one of the most important annual events for the hospice movement. Until this year, however, it had not been promoted at a national level. Light up a Life events involve music, a spiritual element (often in the form of a multi-faith service) and the switching on of lights on trees or the lighting of candles of remembrance. Local hospices invite people to make a donation that supports their work, while dedicating a light in memory of a loved one. A book of remembrance is usually produced and bereavement counsellors are on-hand to give support. There are currently 367 Light up a Life events listed.
