PEOPLE remembered lost loved ones last night at a special and moving ceremony at Kirkwood Hospice.
The hospice launched its annual Light Up A Life scheme, which aims to help people cope with bereavement as Christmas approaches.
People honoured friends and relatives who had died by putting lights on a special tree in the garden of the hospice at Albany Road in Dalton.
Despite the cold and the rain, a large number of people attended.
The name of every person who had a light dedicated to them was entered in a book of remembrance.
The book will be on display in the chapel area of the hospice.
People who bought lights for the tree also received commemorative cards.
Every year the ceremony is attended by people who have lost relatives in the Hospice.
Another service was held on Saturday at the United Reformed Church, Long Causeway, Dewsbury,
The money raised from the lights will go towards the hospice's annual running costs, which totalled £3.15m last year.
Only £635,000 of this is funded by the local primary care trust - meaning the hospice relies on fundraising and donations for the other £2.5m.
