Ely City Military Band and the city’s Sing! Choir will perform at Arthur Rank Hospice’s Light Up a Life service at the start of December.

Hundreds of lights will be lit up on a Christmas tree outside the hospice, as hospice staff, volunteers, supporters, friends and family come together to remember loved ones.

The evening, which takes place on Sunday December 2 from 5pm, will see guests welcomed, with music from Ely City Military Band and Sing! Choirs (Ely, Newmarket and Cambridge).

A service including readings, poems, songs and carols will then be led by the hospice’s chaplain Keith Morrison and the Bishop of Ely, Right Revd Stephen Conway.

A moment of silence and reflection will follow, before the lights on the Christmas tree are switched on.

To attend on the evening, or make a dedication, register at http://www.arhc.org.uk/lightupalife before Wednesday November 21 or call 01223 675888.
