Dedicate a light for Light Up the Prom 2017

13 September 2017

Bournemouth Hospital Charity and Macmillan Caring Locally are inviting people to remember their loved ones by dedicating a light to them during Light Up the Prom.

Bournemouth’s biggest memorial event returns on Friday 20 October when all those who have bought a light will gather on Bournemouth Pier Approach for a magical evening of memories.

The event features two minutes of silent reflection as hundreds of lights illuminate the prom, followed by a dazzling fireworks display. Musical entertainment will also be provided by the Bournemouth Male Voice Choir.

Bournemouth Hospital Charity Events Officer, Karen Smith, said: “Light Up the Prom is a beautiful way for us all to remember those special people who touched our lives and we invite you to commemorate and celebrate those who are no longer with us during this wonderful event.”

Lights cost just £5 and proceeds will be shared between Bournemouth Hospital Charity and Macmillan Caring Locally, which supports the Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital.

This year’s event is sponsored by Harold G Walker Solicitors. Managing Partner, Nicola Lowe, said: “As local solicitors, we have witnessed first-hand the outstanding care delivered by staff at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital. That is why we are so proud to be sponsoring the inspirational Light Up the Prom event.”

Light Up the Prom is once again made possible thanks to Pains Fireworks, who have been supporting the event since its inception back in 2014.

If you would like to dedicate a £5 light to a loved one, pop along to the Charity Office at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital, the Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital, call 01202 704060 or go to BHCharity.org/light-up/.
