PEOPLE can celebrate the life of a lost loved one by dedicating a light on Kirkwood Hospice's Tree of Lights.
The Light Up A Life appeal invites people to make a donation and remember someone who is no longer with them.
One person who has dedicated a light for many years is Huddersfield man Robert Boulton, a volunteer at the Dalton hospice.
He said: "My wife died in the hospice five years ago and in the years since I have made a donation to the appeal.
"Time has done its healing work and I have now made another life.
"But Light Up A Life is a way of remembering Sue and the light that she shone in my life, while helping the hospice, which was there for both of us at the time of our greatest need."
The appeal is sponsored by Huddersfield chemical company Syngenta and by Mirfield firm Interface Fabrics.
Readers who want to dedicate a light can collect a form from Kirkwood's shops in Huddersfield, Holmfirth and Thongsbridge or the hospice's fundraising department on 01484 557911.
People are invited to see the lights being switched on the Tree of Lights in the hospice grounds in Albany Road during the hospice's dedication and tree-lighting service at 4.30pm on Sunday, December 12.
In 2003, more than 2,500 lives were celebrated through the Light Up A Life appeal.
This year the hospice hopes that even more people will remember loved ones by joining the appeal.
Money raised through the appeal is used to pay for services offered to meet the needs of patients with life- threatening illnesses.
