Trees of Love: A festive remembrance

Remember family and friends at Christmas by dedicating a beautiful dove to hang on our illuminated Trees of Love.

Trees of Love provides a special and personal way to remember those dear to us who we aren’t able to spend time with over Christmas. We invite you to dedicate a dove which will hang on our beautiful Trees of Love and be illuminated throughout the festive season.

The 2017 date for your diary:
