The annual Marie Curie Lights to Remember service returns to Norwich Cathedral next week, providing an opportunity to reflect on lost loved ones and to thank the nurses who provide end of life care across Norfolk and Suffolk.

The important fundraising event, which takes place at the cathedral at 7.30pm on Thursday December 8, will include the Lights to Remember messages of commemoration, which is open to the congregation.

Hugo Stevenson, community fundraiser for Marie Curie in Norfolk, said: 'Please arrive early to allow time to write your message so that it can be added to the display.

'This is often a difficult time of year for those who have lost loved ones, so the Marie Curie service of remembrance offers solidarity and support, while acknowledging the wonderful work of Marie Curie.

'Our nurses provide specialist care and emotional support to patients and their families at the end of their lives, a service that is totally free to anyone with a terminal illness, and our nurses work through the night to enable people to live their last days at home and make the most of the time they have left.'
