Lights Of Love shone out from Wolverton Mill on Sunday, at an annual service held by Willen Hospice.

The annual event at the Ridgeway Centre was to remember loved ones who will not be with us over the Christmas period, and raised over £14,000 for the hospice in Willen.

Willen Hospice Christmas trees were decorated with stars from children and young people, and were illuminated with hundreds of lights. The tress were taken back to the hospice and will remain lit until the new year.

Special books of honour, filled with dedications in memory of loved ones, were also produced and can be viewed at the hospice until January 4.

The event also saw musical performances by the Willen Hospice Choir, MK Brass, Junction 14 and MK Acapella.

Hospice chief executive Paul Hinson said: “The Lights Of Love service is such a special occasion, allowing our supporters and the community of Milton Keynes to come together and remember loved ones.

“The service would not have been possible without the generous support we receive from local businesses. We are extremely thankful to RBS, Finch & Sons, Chameleon and Mercedes-Benz Financial Services for sponsoring the event, and the many businesses and volunteers who helped make this event possible.”
