Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity (FNHC) is hosting its annual Tree of Light service within the grounds of the charity office at Walton Lodge, Walton Street, Aylesbury, on Sunday, December 6, at 5pm.

Due to building works at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, this year’s service sees a change of venue and will be held within the grounds of FNHC – ensuring links to Florence Nightingale Hospice are evident throughout the remembrance service.

Readers are invited to sponsor a light in memory of a loved one, which will shine brightly on trees outside the hospice and at Walton Lodge (suggested donation £8).

The traditional service of remembrance will be led by Carole Hough, who said: “Christmas is a time of hope, and by having the Tree of Light at the beginning of December, we take the light of our loved ones with us in our hearts, throughout the Christmas season.”

Individual dedications will be recorded in a special Book of Honour, which guests can view at the service, and for every twinkling light, a personal card of acknowledgement will be produced.

The service will take place outside, so please make sure you wrap up warm.

There is parking for disabled visitors only at the venue. Details of alternative offsite parking locations will be confirmed nearer the time. For more information, visit
