If you’ve lost a loved one who remains a beacon in your life why not dedicate a tribute to them at the annual Light Up the Prom event at Bournemouth Pier Approach? This poignant memorial event is organised by Macmillan Caring Locally and Bournemouth Hospital Charity for people to honour and remember their loved ones.
You can purchase a remembrance candle from the Bournemouth Hospital Charity office in the hospital atrium in the run-up to the event or on the evening itself sold by the charities by Bournemouth Pier. The names of your loved one will also be added to a remembrance book for the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals, which will continue their legacy.
When the clock strikes 7:30pm, a single firework will sound, which signals the amassed crowds to switch on their lights. After two minutes’ silence to honour your loved ones there is a short firework display in celebration of their precious lives.
