Iconic landmarks across Cambridge city centre will be joining together next week to be illuminated in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) - as a celebration of the families the charity supports.

The eight landmarkswill be lit in EACH colours – purple and orange – on Saturday 8th December as part of the charity’s Light Up EACH Life campaign. The buildings take part are:

  • Emmanuel College
  • St Andrew's Baptist Church
  • The Grafton
  • The Fitzwilliam Museum
  • The Mathematical Bridge at Queen's college
  • The Round Church
  • The Corpus Clock
  • The Guildhall

Polly West, EACH Community Fundraiser - Cambridgeshire, said: “We are so excited see these iconic buildings and landmarks across Cambridge city centre illuminated in EACH colours. I’d like to thank all of the organisations involved for showing their support.

“If you’re around Cambridge on the day please do take a tour to see as many as you can. We’re asking people to give generously to our bucket collectors so we can continue to provide vital care to local families at a time when they need it most.

“We are also excited to be joined by a dance group 4th Dimension and The Cambridge Band and Peterborough Community Gospel Choir who will be performing outside some of the illuminated buildings.

“We’ll have selfie frames at all the venues and so make sure you grab a photo and share you pictures using the #LightUpEACHLife.”

Also taking place on the 8th December is the Light Up EACH Life Family Christmas Concert with Sing! Choirs at St Andrews Baptist Church. The evening will feature the popular Sing! Choirs performing a medley of uplifting songs starting at 6pm. Tickets are available now at

Both events will form part of the Light Up EACH Life campaign will be a celebration of the life of every child and family the charity currently cares for and has cared for in the past. EACH offers light to families in the darkest of times, to honour this the campaign will focus on elements of light as a way of celebrating every family.

Polly continued “There are so many ways you can get involved and help to spread awareness of the work we do. Visit our website to find out more – thank you!”
