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 children and young people at Martin House, and their families, in the year ahead. Our virtual Memory Tree will remain live until the end of January 2020.

Our multi-faith Light up a Life services offer a time for reflection, with music from local choirs and a selection of readings. During each service, our Martin House Christmas Tree will be illuminated with a myriad of lights, each shining for someone special. The services will be taking place at St. Mary's Church, Boston Spa (Tuesday 3rd December), Bradford Cathedral, Bradford (Wednesday 4th December), and Holy Trinity Church, Skipton (Thursday 5th December). 

Please note: As we are promoting the lottery and raffle on our site, all online purchases using a credit card are currently being treated as gambling transactions by the banks. This means that you will be charged a £3 fee by your bank if paying by credit card and start being charged interest from the date of your transaction. We are currently working with Worldpay, the card processing company, to rectify this problem to ensure that supporters who are not gambling will not receive these erroneous charges.

In the meantime, WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU USE DEBIT CARDS ONLY for your online donations and purchases, so that these charges are not applied. We hope to have this issue resolved very soon.
