Light up a Life service at the Poole Civic Centre.
The moving service was led by Rev. Fraser Smith to remember loved ones this Christmas. Candles were lit in memory of them and in gratitude that we shared their life for a time.
Carols around the tree were accompanied by the Salvation Army.
The Mayor of Poole, Councillor Sean Gabriel, then switched on the Christmas lights and we went into the hall for carols, Christmas songs and mince pies.
The evening was in aid of our newest charity - Forest Holme hospice. and we were delighted to hear that over £600 was raised.
