Hundreds of people lit up a life in memory of a loved one at special services to raise money for Pontefract’s Prince of Wales Hospice.

The Light Up A Life campaign - launched in partnership with the Express last month - has now raised more than £21,000 for the Halfpenny Lane care centre.

Amanda Jubb, hospice fundraiser, said: “The support has been amazing. We don’t want people to underestimate what a difference they make to our patients and their families.

“We really hope our services helped give people the chance to have something to remind them of their loved one and the memories shared.”

The last list of names to be printed in the Express are below but people can still dedicate a light by visitng www.pwh.org.uk/light-up-a-life or call the hospice on 01977 708868.

Names will continue to be listed in books of remembrance at the hospice and Airedale and Pontefract library.
