Thank you to everyone who has dedicated a dove to their loved one this year

Trees of Love, east Kent's largest remembrance, was hosted in our hospice grounds, and at various indoor venues, throughout early December.

The festive season can be the hardest for those of us who have lost loved ones, so each year we offer the opportunity to join together for our remembrance services with carols.

Beautiful dedicated doves are placed on the illuminated Trees of Love, letting your memories shine throughout the festive season. Then we invite everyone to join us for carols, mulled wine, hot chocolate and warm mince pies at our hospices and alternative indoor venues.

This year's doves will be on display on the trees until 6th January at our hospices.

You can still watch the Trees of Love 2022 film below, or on our YouTube Channel here.

Many have dedicated a dove to their loved one for many years, as part of Trees of Love. If you have someone special to remember each year, you can sign up with an annual Direct Debit. This would ensure you receive a dove to dedicate automatically every year, along with your invitation to your chosen service.

Here are some of the loved ones you are remembering this year...

£30 could pay for two complimentary therapy sessions for a patient, to give them a distraction from their illness,
and the opportunity to relax over the festive season.

£45 could help a Pilgrims counsellor provide a one-to-one      session with someone struggling to cope with their
first Christmas without their loved one.

£100 could allow our community nurses to continue making  home visits to our patients that wish to spend
their Christmas at home with family and friends.
