At midnight on Wednesday 15th September 2021, we will be closing dedications for this event. This is so our Fundraising team have time to write and attach each dedication to a lantern ahead of our event on Saturday 18th September. If you would like to make a donation to Bluebell Wood after this time, please consider making a general donation via our website.

This summer, take part in a very special brand new event with Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice. 

As we move towards a brighter future, now is the time to remember those we’ve sadly lost, as well as to celebrate friends and family who’ve been a light in the darkness over the past year.

Join us in lighting up Manvers Lake and help us raise vital funds after the toughest year Bluebell Wood has ever faced.

When you dedicate a candle in a loved one’s name, your tribute will join hundreds of others floating across the water, in a stunning display of lights on Saturday 18th September from 6.30pm.

These lanterns (which are made of waterproof paper) will be securely fixed to canoes and will float about 3-5 feet above the water at sunset at 7.45pm. After they've been floated out into the middle of the lake, will be collected in by our team - so won't be damaging to the environment.

Every light dedicated helps us be there for families in their darkest hour like parents Jody and Ben who were “saved” by our support after saying goodbye to their daughter, Beau.

Our special Light up the Lake event is proudly sponsored by Utilita Energy Hub.

Booking for this event has now closed.
