Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw announce special events to remember loved ones this season.

As the days begin to get shorter, we start to look ahead to the festive period, which can be a poignant time. It can provide people with the chance to reflect and remember loved ones and friends who will not be with us this year. 

Lake District Coast Aquarium

Last year thousands of people joined Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice at their annual Lake of Lights memorial event at Talkin Tarn. During the unique evening the tranquil setting was transformed by hundreds of lights on the water and in the surrounding woodland, each one representing a cherished memory of a relative, friend or loved one no longer with us.  

On Sunday 21 October, Talkin Tarn will once again be illuminated as the popular event returns. The symbolic evening provides the opportunity to reflect and remember in a peaceful setting. Each lantern can be personalised with a special message, before being placed on floating platforms and sent onto the water. 

In November and December, Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw will also be offering three Light Up a Life events in Carlisle and Penrith. Each event will offer the chance to reflect in music and words. 

At Penrith Methodist Church and Carlisle Cathedral the charity are inviting the local community to bring a bauble or tree decoration for the hospice Christmas trees, representing a loved one. Meanwhile during the Hospice Grounds Gathering you will be offered a tea light to place in and around the hospice as you remember a loved one.  

All donations gifted during Lake of Lights and Light Up a Life will help Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw to provide care, support and activities to our patients, their families and carers.
