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 2019. We also have three Light up a Life services taking place across the festive period, in Boston Spa, Skipton and Bradford. Click here to find out more. 

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.
