Remember a loved one, support your hospice Christmas concert

Posted on 13 November 2017 by Monika Reichelt

The Ayrshire Hospice is getting ready to hold their third annual Light up a Life Christmas Concert which will take place on Sunday 26th November 2017 at 7pm in the Grand Hall, Kilmarnock.  The concert is an opportunity for anyone to attend to remember loved ones at what can often be a very poignant time of year.   

The concert is part of “Light up a Life”, a nationwide campaign driven through Hospice UK to enable people across the country to remember loved ones and support their local hospice at Christmas time.

The evening will include performances from a variety of community groups from across Ayrshire including A Choired Taste, Forehill Primary School, Isle of Cumbrae RBLS Pipe Band, Salvation Army Band and St Joseph's Academy. 

Lyn Bateman, Senior Fundraising Officer at the Ayrshire Hospice said “We are so fortunate that our hospice is so well respected throughout Ayrshire and Arran and the support of our community is never taken for granted.  It costs around £20,000 per day to run Ayrshire Hospice services and the charity needs to raise £4.8million a year from voluntary donations alone.  The concert is a unique opportunity for Ayrshire as a community to come together and share in remembering loved ones.  Christmas is a thoughtful time for many people and the concert will be very much a night of celebration and reflection.”

Tickets are £10 adults and £6 for under-16s.  To book tickets please contact Lyn Bateman at the Ayrshire Hospice on 01292 288488 or email

There will also be an opportunity to buy tickets on the night however the Ayrshire Hospice advises that supporters book early to avoid disappointment.

Doors open at 6pm where hospice Christmas cards, calendars and raffle tickets will also be available.
