People in Lincoln took part in a community remembrance service on Tuesday, November 25 in annual Light Up a Life celebrations.

The evening event, organised by St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, saw hundreds of people take part in a flaming torchlight procession through the city centre.

The procession culminated at Lincoln Cathedral for the switching on of the Tree of Life lights. Each person could dedicate a light to someone special whilst helping St Barnabas raise vital funds.

Now in its 14th year, Light Up a Life gives people a chance to remember loved ones, also helping the hospice to raise their £35,000 target in order to provide end of life care in the county.

Veronica Brien, Head of Fundraising and Marketing at St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said: “Lincoln’s Light up a Life torch procession was truly breath-taking. We walked shoulder to shoulder through the streets for one united reason: to remember those we love and miss.

“We are delighted and deeply appreciative of the continued support we received from so many different organisations, particularly City Maintenance Services who have once again helped us to erect and dress the beautiful Tree of Life outside Lincoln Cathedral.

“Without the support from organisations like this we simply wouldn’t be able to put on this moving and inspiring event. We thank you all for your ongoing support for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice.”
