2020 Tree of Remembrance
Christmas is generally the time of year when we think of people who won't be with us during the festive season - they may have died, they may be living overseas or in other parts of the country, or perhaps just can't be with you at this time of year.
From 19 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. Each Farmers has a dedicated Tree of Remembrance in store to display your message for friends and family and the community to see.
The Tree of Remembrance is a way to honour those we think of and support hospice. 100% of everything donated remains within the community in which it was given, supporting the local hospice service.
After the end of the campaign, the remembrance cards will be gathered together and given to Hospice Taranaki, where they will be blessed, cremated and sprinkled over the Hospice rose gardens. The blessing etc. will be carried out in Hospice Awareness Week in May 2021.
