There’s so many ways you can get involved and support St Barnabas House.

Light Up a Life 2020

Remember your loved ones and support St Barnabas House by taking part in this year’s Light Up a Life celebration.


Each year at Christmas time, through our Light Up a Life Appeal, St Barnabas House provides the local community with the opportunity to join together to remember and celebrate the lives and memories of their loved ones.

Light Up A Life 2019

This year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, in place of our usual services at Worthing Assembly Hall, we will be holding a virtual remembrance celebration.

We will record the service and make it as widely available as possible; on our website, our social media pages and, if we have your email address, we will also send you a link to the video which will be available to view at 7pm on Monday 14 December.

You can remember your loved ones by including their names in a specially printed commemorative programme that will be the Order of Service for our virtual service. If we have your postal address, these will be mailed out to you in time for the service.

Why Ian is celebrating Light Up a Life

Ian’s wife, Susan, was cared for by St Barnabas at the end of her life.

In Ian’s words, “During the four weeks Susan was on the ward at St Barnabas, nothing was too much trouble, no effort was spared to make us feel like we were the only people the team had responsibility for.”

Read Ian and Susan’s story here or watch Ian talking about his experience of Light Up a Life below.

All the care and support we offer to patients and their families is free of charge. We are here for them 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The hospice, and the care it provides, only exist because of donations from generous local people like you. Any contribution you are able to make will be gratefully received.

If you would like to make a dedication, and a donation if you wish, to the Light Up a Life Appeal, please reply either by completing the donation form or you can make a dedication and include a photo if you wish on the Dedication Page by Friday 20 November 2020, so we can ensure that your dedication is included in the specially printed programme.
