Light Up Hospice
Each year Hospice West Auckland celebrates and remembers the lives of people who have passed away, and enjoys the spirit of Christmas with the Waitakere community at ‘Light Up Hospice’. Last year the free, family event attracted over 1000 people.
- Singer Lisa Crawley
- MC Aidee Walker (Draska from Outrageous Fortune)
- Chinese Dragon
- Father Christmas
- Face Painting
- Kapa Haka
- Cultural Groups
- Live music
As dusk falls the anticipation rises and when it is dark enough the beautiful lights strung over Hospice House are turned on in a stunning tribute to the members of our community who are no longer with us.
This year there will also be a Twilight Walk down to the end of Beach Road and back. The gentle stroll will lead people on a fan trail down to the Peninsula to admire the spectacular view across the water to the Sky Tower.
Remember to bring some gold coins so you can enjoy a sausage sizzle or a snack, buy a candle or enter one of our fantastic raffles. Prizes include a Christmas Hamper and a Les Mills New Lynn year-long gym membership worth $1734.40!
Light Up Hospice is generously supported by Ritchies Coachlines, Les Mills, Davis Funerals, Te Atatu RSA, Senztek, The Flying Herons, Corban Revel Lawyers, Prestige Loos, Tass Print, John Andrew, Morrison’s Funerals, Maitland and Associates, Frog Recruitment, Working Capital Solutions and many other local community groups and businesses.
Thanks to our sponsors, without your help this event would not be possible.
