  • The palliative care hospice is holding its annual Christmas event this Friday, 15 December

Cudeca Hospice is holding its traditional Christmas “Light a Light” event in memory of loved ones on Friday 15 December from 6pm.

The celebration includes the traditional lighting of the festive lights that decorate the Cudeca Hospice Centre in Benalmádena by the founder and honorary president, Joan Hunt OBE, and the chief executive and medical director, Marisa Martín.

The area will also be lit up by the more than 300 charity candles carried by volunteers, friends and employees.

Father Christmas will be another VIP at the event where there will also be face painting for children and a performance by the Sunny View school choir.

Christmas cakes and sweets will be available as well as the chance to win prizes in the charity raffle.

More stalls will offer Cudeca’s popular Christmas cards handcrafted by patients and volunteers, calendars and Christmas lottery tickets.

Anyone wishing to light a light in memory of their loved one can do so at for a minimum donation of €10 or at the Hospice Centre on the night of the event.

The dedication will figure in the book “Light a Light” that will be printed and displayed in the Cudeca Hospice.

The Lights of the Centre are a personal tribute and will continue to shine until 6 January.
