Slideshow: Lakelands Light up a Life service

Hundreds of loved ones were remembered at a ceremony in Corby.

The Lakelands Hospice Light up a life ceremony enabled people to remember a loved one by making a dedication for them in the form of a shining light on the hospice’s Christmas tree.

The tree was the central point of the service and was illuminated with hundreds of lights to represent the life of loved ones.

It will then be a comforting reminder throughout the Christmas period of the people no longer with us but whom we love and wish to remember.

The short service included poignant readings, Christmas carols and the reading out of loved ones names from the book of remembrance.

Among those performing were the Corby Silver Band and singers Vicki-Louise Sherwin and Paul Davies.

All names will be put in the book of remembrance, which will be kept in the foyer of the Hospice on Butland Road throughout the Christmas period and displayed at both Light up a Life services.
