Communities across Dartford and Gravesend will come together in memory of lost
loved ones at the Lights of Love services.
The uplifting and heart-warming Lights of Love services offer all families – whether they have been supported by the ellenor hospice charity or not - an opportunity to pause during this busy time of year and remember those who are unable to share Christmas with us.
By donating to the Lights of Love appeal, you can dedicate a light, or a number of
lights, on the Christmas tree in memory of someone special.
The name of loved ones will be displayed in the annual Lights of Love book,
which can be viewed throughout the year at the hospice in Coldharbour Road, Northfleet.
Joanne Bradley, ward sister at ellenor, said: “Dedicating a light can be a comfort
following the death of a loved one, as well as supporting all the valuable work that
The first service is this Saturday (December 9) at Grace Outreach Church, Dartford and another on Sunday at ellenor Gravesend.
Doors open 4pm, so people can view the dedicated names, light a candle and write a message on a star, which they can either take home or hang on the indoor tree at ellenor hospice.
The non-denominational services at 4.30pm are an opportunity to pause for
reflection and through music, readings and the lighting of candles, commemorate
lives and loves past. The evenings will end at 6pm.
Every morning at 10am we play you an hour of tunes from the 90s. We call it, #WeLoveThe90s.
