What is celebrate a life?

Celebrate a Life, became the new name for the Light Up A Life event of which was established 20 years ago to give people in North Lincolnshire the opportunity to remember those they love but have sadly lost.

It is a community event hosted by the Scunthorpe Macmillan Fundraising Committee that brings people together to celebrate and remember loved ones amongst others. For a small donation a light will shine on our tree of memories which is proudly displayed in Scunthorpe Town Centre throughout November and December.

Over the past 20 years the event has raised over £200,000 helping and supporting people in the local area.
