What a fantastic year it’s been so far!  We’ve been blown away by the enthusiasm of the supporters who have taken part in our events so far this year.  As nights draw in and the temperature drops, there are still plenty of exciting plans to get involved in towards the end of the year.  Make sure you follow Cransley Hospice Trust on Facebook for all the latest updates.

The Tree of Lights

St Mary’s Hospital Site, Kettering

Sunday 2nd December, 6.30pm

The Tree of Lights is a reflective service, with readings, carols and music, allowing people of all ages and faiths to remember and reflect together at this special time of year.  The lights on the tree are dedicated to greatly-missed friends and family-members and they shine brightly throughout the festive season until the Twelfth Night on the 5th January.

As 2018 marks the 20th Anniversary year of Cransley Hospice, we are taking the opportunity to make this very special event even more memorable, by moving our service to the home of our Hospice, at the St Mary’s Hospital site in Kettering.  Holding the Tree of Lights in this poignant location will enable our community to come together in remembrance of those who are no longer with us, whether they received care from Cransley Hospice or not.

Our incredible clinical team provide outstanding compassionate care to local people and their families each year which is only possible with your on-going support.  We hope that by attending this year’s Tree of Lights event, you will receive comfort at what can be an emotional time of year, while also enabling Cransley Hospice to continue to help other families in need. To make a donation in memory of your loved one, please contact our fundraising office on 01536 452 423 or online at
