Relatives join Rotherham Hospice services to remember loved ones

SERVICES were held in the Rotherham hospice grounds and at Rotherham Minster to mark this year’s Light Up A Life appeal.

The emotional occasion, held at the Broom Road charity last Saturday, is an annual event for remembering happy times spent with loved ones who have passed away.

Speeches and readings were from hospice chief executive John Whaling, adult bereavement volunteer Roger Shaw, clinical governance leader Tracy Bell, hospice ambassador Ian Tomlinson, head of fundraising and communications Samantha Wood, and Cath Todd, who runs the Sunbeams support group for bereaved children.

Hymns and carols were led by the Margaret Duckworth Singers.
