Our Appeal

Light up a Life 2016


Dedicate a light on our Christmas Tree in memory of a loved one this Christmas.

Throughout the Christmas period, a Tree of Light stands proudly in the grounds of Compton Hospice.

Hundreds of lights shine from the tree, each one dedicated to the memory of loved ones lost. 

By making a donation, your gift of dedicating a light on our tree will also be a gift to patients and their families currently facing the challenges of living with an incurable illness.

In return for dedicating a light on our tree we will:

  • Record the name of your loved one in our ‘Book of Dedication’, along with a short message
  • Send you a Light Up a Life Memory Card for you to display in your home
  • For those making a donation of £10 or more you will receive a Light Up a Life pin badge
  • Invite you to our Light Up a Life service taking place at 3.30pm on Sunday 4th December in the grounds of Compton Hospice, 4 Compton Road West, Wolverhampton, WV3 9DH (more details below).

To dedicate a light on our tree and make a donation in memory of a loved one please click here. From the ‘Type of Donation’ menu please select ‘Light Up a Life’ and complete your details.

Alternatively you can download an order form here. We kindly ask that forms are returned to Compton Hospice Fundraising, The Cedars, 39 Compton Road West, Wolverhampton, WV3 9DW or email fundraising@compton-hospice.org.uk
