  • Market Place Easingwold (map)

Christmas holds warm memories of people we love!

St Leonard’s Hospice would like to invite you to dedicate a light on our Light up a Life tree in memory of a loved one or as a gift in honour of a friend or relative.

Our Christmas trees in St Helen’s Square in York, Selby Abbey, the Hospice grounds and Easingwold Market Place, will all bear hundreds of twinkling lights, each one representing the life of someone special.

Each name will be recorded in our Books of Honour which will be placed in the sanctuary at the Hospice, Selby Abbey and Easingwold Methodist Church. The books will be displayed over the Christmas period and the lights will shine until Twelfth Night.

How you can Light up a Life this Christmas

If you would like to help the work of St Leonard’s by dedicating a light, please complete the form on our website - Your donation really will make a difference and will ensure that the Hospice is able to continue to provide specialist care to those in our community who need it.

Light up a Life Services

Our trees will be illuminated at three very special carol services

You are warmly invited to join us at any or all of these services.

Thank you so much for supporting us in this special way.

“We will never be able to thank you enough for the care and support that was shown to our lovely mum and to us as a family during her stay at St Leonard’s. You are all so thoughtful, caring and kind and we cannot imagine how we would have managed with caring for mum at home. We shared some lovely, intimate moments with mum in her last few days thanks to the care she received at St Leonard’s.”
