We were delighted to be able to support the work of St Margaret’s Hospice Care again this year, by hosting one of their ‘Light Up A Life’ Services.

The service was led by our Chaplain, Mrs Kitto, and the readings were spoken by members of the school community and staff. The Chamber Choir and Edgarley Voices sang some beautiful songs, especially the Candlelight Carol, which they performed whilst the congregation each lit a candle and left it on the altar to remember a loved one. At the end of the service, there was also an opportunity to leave a message on the Christmas tree and spend time reflecting in the candle-lit space.

We were thrilled that Jo Halls from the charity was able to come and talk to us and we held a collection at the end of the service for the invaluable work of St Margaret’s Hospice Care in Somerset. It was a very moving service, in which we gave thanks for the important work of the Hospice movement, while reflecting and remembering those that we have lost.
