Trees of Remembrance

Each year leading up to Christmas, special Christmas trees appear in locations around the Waikato. These trees hold a special place in the community as Christmas is often a time when the loss of a loved one is felt perhaps more than any other time of the year. Customers can make a donation and receive a remembrance card, then write their message on the card and hang it on the dedicated remembrance tree.
