Watch Gateshead Health’s first-ever Light up a Life 2023 Remembrance Ceremony

In this heartwarming video, we bring you Gateshead Health’s first-ever Light up a Life 2023 Remembrance Ceremony, presented by the dedicated team at Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust and QE Charitable Funds.

This touching ceremony, held on the evening of 30 November 2023 at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, was a beautiful way to remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones who are no longer with us.

If you missed the ceremony, or if you attended and want to see it again, then please join us as we Light up a Life to honour those we have lost and share messages of hope and love.

Whether you watch this video to remember someone special or enjoy the uplifting atmosphere, we hope it brings you comfort and peace.
