Welcoming you all to the Hospice for Light Up a Life is one of the things we most look forward to each year. It’s very much a tradition for us, and although we can’t meet in person this Christmas, we hope you will join us from the comfort of your own home for our virtual service.

This year, we’ve taken our service online, but are still showcasing amazing, festive performances like we always do…

Watch Light Up A Life

Shine a light on our Christmas tree

It’s always very touching to see your dedications on the stars surrounding our Hospice Christmas tree and although we have to do things a little differently this year, we still wanted to give you a chance to light up a life.

Here is our special virtual Christmas tree, where you can make your dedication to a loved one. Just click on the image and you’ll be taken to our dedication site where you can choose a star, add a photo and make a donation to support our Hospice during these tough times…

Each dedication and donation you make helps to ensure our Hospice can keep supporting patients and families across Birmingham and Sandwell when they need us most.   Families like Jim’s…

“This has been an extraordinary year for everyone. I have the comfort of knowing that Julie had the best possible care at Birmingham St Mary’s.

I hope you will feel that Light up a Life is something you and your family can take part in and celebrate the memory of her and of everybody else who has benefited by the very special care and support that St Mary’s provides.” – Jim
