St Mary’s Hospice- Light up a Life


We are increasingly proud of the growing partnership we have with the wonderful St Mary’s Hospice. We were honoured when we were asked to host the Barrow Light up a Life service here at Furness Academy. The purpose of this service is to “dedicate a light and celebrate the life of someone you love”.

We had readings, singers, poets and carols, with own school choir performing a few songs. The evening was, naturally, very emotional but it was a special night as well. Charlotte Crawford in Year 11 also presented St Mary’s with a cheque for over £130 which she has raised for the hospice in memory of her dad. We hope the evening was enjoyed by all those who came along.
