RE­MEM­BER a loved one this Christ­mas by in­clud­ing a trib­ute on a spe­cial tree. The Pil­grims Hos­pices recog­nise that the joy and cel­e­bra­tion of Christ­mas of­ten in­volves gath­er­ings of fam­ily and friends. But it can also be a very poignant time for those who face Christ­mas without a loved one who has died. So Pil­grims Hos­pices in­vite any­one from the com­mu­nity to join them to re­mem­ber their loved ones by hav­ing a tag on a Christ­mas tree and at­tend­ing a spe­cial ser­vice. Ge­off Wal­ters, Pil­grims Hos­pices chap­lain in Can­ter­bury, said: “Trees of Love pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity to re­mem­ber loved ones we will not see at Christ­mas. “A Christ­mas tree will stand in the gar­den of each of the three hos­pices in Can­ter­bury, re­mem­ber­ing and we will sing car­ols to­gether.” To com­plete a tag for your loved one and for more in­for­ma­tion, pick up a Trees of Love leaflet at any Pil­grims Hos­pices re­cep­tion or call 01227 782062. The ser­vice will be held on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 12, at 6pm at the Ash­ford Pil­grims Hospice and the tags will re­main on the trees over Christ­mas.
