KEMP Hospice will be holding its annual Light up a Life carol service and blessing on Saturday. 

Over the last month, people have been leaving messages on one of three Christmas trees to remember and celebrate someone special.

The hospice will be holding a blessing at the Swan Centre tree in Kidderminster at 10.45am before a carol service at Kidderminster Town Hall at 11am.

Christmas carols and readings will take place providing a time for reflection.

The two other trees are located in Bewdley Museum and Stourport Co-operative which will also be blessed at the service.

The dedications will be recorded in a special book which will be displayed at Kidderminster, Bewdley and Stourport libraries.

Kate Wilkinson, fundraiser at KEMP Hospice, said: “This year we are also having lights shining out from the Hospice in Mason Road, Kidderminster and as more dedications are received, more lights will be added.”

The service is open to anyone and not just for people receiving hospice care.
