PEOPLE from across the Bradford district are invited to a special remembrance service in memory of children and other relatives.

Martin House Children’s Hospice for its Light up a Life offers families a space to grieve a child or loved one.

It will take place at the Thornbury Centre, Leeds Old Road, at 6pm on Tuesday, December 5.

Emma Taylor, head of family support and transition at Martin House, said: “Around a third of the families we support at Martin House come from the Bradford district, so we wanted to provide an opportunity for people in this area to come together.

“At the darkest and also busiest time of year, Light up a Life gives people the space and time to remember their child, but also provides a shared moment of remembrance, where we can reflect on and celebrate their lives.”

The event will include music, readings, poems, and the lighting of candles, and will be followed by refreshments. There is no need to book, and it is free to attend.

As well as the service, there is also an online book of dedication, where people can leave a message and upload a picture of their loved one.
