PEOPLE have been invited to light a lantern in memory of a loved one to raise money for the Hospice of the Valleys.
On Saturday the hospice is inviting people to come to the park and take part in the Circle of Light at Parc Bryn Bach, Tredegar, by lighting a floating lantern on the lake, in remembrance of a family member, colleague or friend.
The lantern ceremony, from 5pm, will be followed by a short fireworks display as darkness falls.
More than 250 people attended last year’s inaugural ceremony.
Those who wish to attend this year’s ceremony can either buy a lantern, for a donation of £5, at the hospice office in Tredegar, or the charity shops in Tredegar, Ebbw Vale, Abertillery, Brynmawr and Blaenavon.
For more information, or if you could help as a volunteer at the ceremony, please contact the hospice on 01495 717277.
