Over 350 people braved the cold to attend this year's Lights of Love ceremony

Over 350 people attended Peace Hospice Care's Lights of Love commemoration ceremony, a chance to remember those who have died, and to honour the lives of loved ones, on Tuesday 11thDecember outside Watford Town Hall.

The ceremony included songs, readings, music, refreshments and the chance to dedicate a light.

This year, the Lights of Love tree was switched on by Lucy Petagine, who said: "The care my Mum received whilst at the Hospice was exceptional. I know that my Mum felt very welcome all the staff were very attentive and caring, not only for my Mum but for our whole family and the Hospice feels like a second home. The nurses were some of the kindest people I've ever met and I will always cherish their kindness, love and support."

 

Thank you to Charlie Smith for performing 'How Long Will I love You', Debbie Clare for overseeing the evening, Smith Coffee Company, Grimsdyke Bass and Watford Philharmonic Society for their performances, Gristwood and Toms for donating our Lights of Love tree, Sainsbury's Watford, Metro Printing, Watford Council, and of course all of our fantastic volunteers and readers for all of their support.
