A hospice is offering a service to remember family and friends who have died.

The annual Light up a Life service by St Nicholas Hospice Care provides an opportunity for people to reflect on the loss of loved ones over the festive season.

For Colin and Pat Rockall, of Lavenham, the services have become a meaningful part of the festive season.

They first attended Light up a Life in 2008 after losing three close relatives and friends.

“As it got towards the end of that year, we felt we wanted to perpetuate their memory,” said Pat.

“It is really quite moving to hear the names of people you knew and loved read out so, for that reason, we have continued to go every year.”

The services at Lavenham’s Salvation Army Hall on November 25, and at St Peter’s, Sudbury, on December 7, both begin at 6.30pm.
