Celebrate a life

Welcome to our Celebrate a Life campaign. Every year, we dedicate this special time to remember our loved ones and support those living with lung cancer. 
 
During this poignant period, we want you to have the opportunity to remember or celebrate your loved one; whether you join us in person, dedicate a light to our charity tree or fill your own virtual tree with messages of love, we want to join together this Christmas. It’s been a very difficult year and we want to stand united in remembrance, in support and in honour of those who need us and those we have lost.  
 
Our ‘Celebrate A Life’ Christmas tree will be there to remember somebody you miss or to support someone with lung cancer and each light will shine brightly, symbolising hope and love.  

What is Celebrate a Life?

Celebrate a Life at Christmas gives you the opportunity to remember a loved one, or support someone living with lung cancer during the festive period. You can do this in a number of ways including dedicating a light on our tree, creating your own virtual family tree to fill with messages of love and attending one of our services of celebration and remembrance.

Ways to get involved with Celebrate a Life at Christmas 2020

Dedicate a star on our Charity tree

This is the perfect place to keep the memory of a loved one alive or to show support to anyone affected by lung cancer. You can dedicate a star and add a personalised message for all to see. Please help us to fill our tree with messages of love and support. May they shine brightly in support of all those affected by lung cancer.

Create a Personalised Tree

Using our online platform, in a few simple steps, you can create your own personalised tree to share with family and friends to add their own messages and dedications. This is a great way for family and friends to share memories and to keep your loved one involved in your Christmas festivities.

Liverpool & Glasglow Services

We invite you to join us for a Service of Celebration and Remembrance on Sunday 12th December at 1.30pm. We will come together to watch the lights being switched on and to share readings, music and enter into the true spirit of Christmas. We hope to also host an event in Glasgow. 

You can register for a service once you have made a dedication to our tree. Follow the link below.

Virtual Service of Celebration & Remembrance

Alongside our in-person service, we’ll be hosting a virtual service, recorded at our events. You’ll be able to virtually come together to watch the lights being switched on, share in the readings and music on the day. Join us here on December 19th at 3pm where we’ll be sharing the service on this webpage. You can register for a service once you have created your own tree. Follow the link below.

All money raised will help those affected by lung cancer, families like the Webber family. 

“I think we’re all hoping this Christmas will be back to normal again. But for those of us who have lost a loved one to lung cancer, Christmas will never be the same again.

We didn’t get much time with Mum after her diagnosis. After being diagnosed with lung cancer in June 2018, we lost her just three short months later. We didn’t even get the chance for one last Christmas together.

It is for this reason that we are doing as much as we can to support Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. Not only does it offer incredible support to those living with lung cancer, but its research into early detection will hopefully mean that fewer people will have to go through what we did. It means that families will get to have more Christmases together.

For the last few years, we’ve been raising money for this incredible charity because its work makes a direct difference to people with lung cancer. Every penny we raise goes towards lung cancer, supporting people with it and funding research to prevent people from being diagnosed too late.

Now, we’re asking you to help too by supporting the Celebrate a Life appeal.”

Mum was happiest when she was surrounded by her family and that’s what Celebrate a Life is all about – a way to remember, support and honour our loved ones at this poignant time of year.
