Arohanui Hospice’s Tree of Remembrance, located at The Plaza in Palmerston North offers an opportunity for people to take a remembrance card on which to write a personal message to someone who has passed away, and then place it on the tree. We also have Remembrance Trees at Farmers Home Store Rangitikei Street and Farmers Levin.
Christmas is generally a 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.
From 14 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. As with the purchase of the limited edition baubles, 100% of everything donated remains within the community in which it was given, supporting the local hospice service!
