Arriva help light up a life

02 December 13


Arriva Yorkshire are proud to support the Wakefield Hospice Light up a Life appeal this year.

At Christmas we often wish to remember those who are special to us. Through the Light up a Life appeal you can celebrate the memory of your loved ones or honour someone special in your life by dedicating a light in their name which will be illuminated on the Tree of Lights.

The Tree of Lights is decorated with hundreds of lights which will be lit at each of the special Light up a Life dedication services.

Event Fundraiser at Wakefield Hospice, Keeley Harrison said “We are thrilled to be working with Arriva Yorkshire and are so grateful for the generous support received. The Light up a Life appeal is very special. When the Tree of Lights is illuminated at each dedication service, it is a very poignant moment, when everyone joins together to remember their loved ones. The services offer time for reflection for the families that attend.”

Nigel Featham, managing director for Arriva Yorkshire said “We are very proud to be supporting Wakefield Hospice. The hospice is close to the hearts of many of our employees and customers, and the Light up a Life appeal is an opportunity to come together with friends and family to remember those loved ones who are no longer with us”.
