Naming a star for both my Dad and brother means a great deal to me. I find comfort knowing their stars are shining down on us from above and that by taking part in this beautiful event, we are doing something positive to support others.

Celebrate a Life 2021 Carol Services

We will switch on the Christmas lights during a short carol service on Tuesday 7 December in Sutton and Thursday 9 December in Chelsea. We will also be live streaming the carol services this year so if you cannot attend the events, you will still be able to be a part of Celebrate a Life, by joining us virtually.
