Light up a Life – Willow Wood Hospice

Deputy Mayor Cllr Stone with John Fellowes (Willow Woods Fundraising & PR Manager), Revd Eddy Inglis and children from Dinting School

Tuesday evening (9th December) saw the Willow Wood Hospice annual "Light up a life" service take place in the 'shelter' of the Glossop Market Arcade.

The "Light up a life" campaign run by Willow Wood Hospice gives local people in Glossopdale the opportunity to celebrate the lives of loved ones who, for whatever reason, are not with them this coming Christmas period.

The service saw the Norfolk Square Christmas Tree relit as a Tree of Light which shines out over Glossop.

All dedications received by the Hospice will be inscribed in a Book of Memories which will be available for viewing at the Municipal Buildings, Glossop between December 1st until the end of the Christmas season. A further book will remain at Willow Wood throughout 2015.

People wishing to dedicate a light can do so by visiting the Hospice web site at and following the link. Alternatively you can ring the Hospice on 0161 330 7788.

Tuesday evenings service featured a mix of carols, songs and prayers from the Dinting Primary School Choir and the Glossopdale Community band with Hospice Chaplain Rev. Eddy Inglis dedicating the Tree of Light with the help of the Deputy Mayor of the High Peak, Councillor Lynn Stone.
