A tree of remembrance is located in Farmers top level, Centre City. From 14 November until Christmas Eve, everyone who makes a donation to Hospice whilst shopping in Farmers will receive a remembrance card. This card is an opportunity to write a special message for someone you'll be thinking about this Christmas. The Tree of Remembrance is a way to honour those we think of and support hospice. As with the purchase of the limited edition baubles, 100% of everything donated remains within Taranaki, supporting your local hospice service.
