Minchinhampton-based Longfield Community Hospice held their Light Up a Life celebration at Gloucester Cathedral on Friday evening.

Hosted by BBC Points West’s Ali Vowles, the event featured Christmas carols, readings and poetry. Guests were invited to light a candle and dedicate a star on the Christmas tree to celebrate the life of someone special.

Longfield’s Head of Fundraising and Marketing, Rachel Jones, said: “Christmas is such a special time, but it can also be a difficult and sometimes lonely time if you are without loved ones. Light up a Life is the perfect way to celebrate and remember someone special and help keep their memory alive.”
