Guests were able to gather outside the Moggerhanger hospice near Biggleswade with candles and lanterns, listening to readings by staff and volunteers.

Community fundraiser Hayley Webb said: “Thank you to everyone who help to make Lights of Love such a beautiful evening.

“Christmas is a special time for many people and we wanted to come together to celebrate and reflect on the lives of loved ones.”
