The Pilgrims Hospices Trees of Love services are an opportunity to come together in the grounds of each hospice, to sing carols and to remember loved ones.
Our Christmas Trees of Love are illuminated and will bear the tags of dedications from Saturday 14th December and all over the Christmas period. You can collect tags from any of our hospices or shops. Just complete and return yours with the registration form found in this supplement.
You will be welcome to view your tag at any time. We encourage a donation, of whatever value you feel able, to help us to continue providing palliative care to the people of east Kent.
Please note, services are held outside so dress warmly for the winter weather. We recommend you bring a torch as it will be dark in the grounds of each hospice. Parking will be limited.
