Trees of Love 2021

Saturday 4 December 2021 - Wednesday 15 December 2021

Remember a loved one this December, by dedicating a beautiful dove, and joining us at our Trees of Love remembrance events across east Kent.

Event information

Celebrate the warmth and brightness of someone special with Trees of Love.

Trees of Love, east Kent's largest festive remembrance, returns to our hospice grounds and alternative indoor venues this year, throughout December. Dedicate and decorate a beautiful dove to your loved one, and join us for a remembrance with carols.

Venue: Our three hospices at Ashford, Canterbury and Thanet

Date and time: Saturday 4 December 2021, 4pm-6pm

Drop in to one of our three hospices anytime between 4pm and 6pm, to find your dove on the illuminated Trees of Love. The evening will be accompanied by carol singers, and warm mince pies will be served throughout.
