Christmas trees lit up at Wigan and Leigh Hospice in 2020 for its 5,000 Lights initiative

Stalls selling Christmas gifts, crafts, goodies and refreshments will be there and visitors can try their luck with raffles and games.

Visitors will be able to see the 30ft tall Light for a Life tree which will be covered in lights dedicated to people loved and lost.

They can also view the 5,000 Lights project which will feature 60 sparkling Christmas trees in the hospice grounds. Each tree is available to sponsor and either features a plaque dedicated to someone special or is sponsored by a local business.
