This helps make sure Rita is not forgotten
Christmas is traditionally a joyful time, but for those who have lost a loved one it can be a difficult period.
Light Up A Life gives bereaved relatives the chance to remember their loved ones in a special and poignant way.
The campaign, which is now in its 14th year, also helps to raise thousands of pounds for Scunthorpe's Lindsey Lodge Hospice and the local branch of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Alan Gilpatrick, 71, of Wray Street, Kirton in Lindsey, is once again taking part in the campaign in memory of his beloved wife Rita, 61.

She died eight years ago after more than 30 years battling crippling rheumatoid arthritis and a heart condition. He said: "This will be the seventh year I have taken part in the campaign, as I think it is the perfect way to remember Rita. I think it is a great campaign that everyone who has lost someone can join in with."
Light Up A Life gives people a chance to remember those who they love but have lost. Each nomination is placed as a light on a tree on display outside The Foundry Shopping Centre in Scunthorpe for Christmas.
Nominations cost £5, the money from which is split between the Lindsey Lodge Hospice and the local branch of Macmillan Cancer Care.
Mr Gilpatrick said: "The campaign helps make sure our loved ones are not forgotten and it is very personal.
"When you lose a loved one, you have to get on with life however hard it is and Christmas can be a difficult time.
"But lighting a candle is a lovely reminder and I think it is an excellent thing. I wish more people would take part."
The Light Up A Life ceremony will be on Wednesday, November 14. To take part, complete the form, left.
