Light Up a Life

As the year draws to a close, we often remember loved ones who are no longer with us, or pause to appreciate the special people in our lives. With a Light up a Life dedication, you can celebrate a life whilst making a difference to Martin House children and young people, and their families, in the year ahead. The website page will remain live until the end of January 2017. 

Remember and make a Light Up A Life dedication today

This simple act of remembrance will help share their memory and help support Martin House families in the year to come.
