Trees of Remembrance
Create a message in memory of a loved one to hang on our special Christmas trees this season. Our Hospice Trees of Remembrance will be positioned at all West Auckland Farmers Department Stores and local shopping areas - look out for them during your Christmas shopping over the next few weeks.
You can also shine a special star in memory of a loved one on our virtual Remembrance Tree.
As well as having the Trees of Remembrance in all 56 stores – Farmers are also selling two specially designed, hand painted baubles from early October.
There are two designs – Pohutukawa by Michael Tuffery and Kowhai by Letitia Lam.
Inspired by the iconic “kiwi” Christmas Tree, Michael’s design is in the traditional colours of Christmas, laden with “antipodean holly” symbolising our sense of place. The design also reflects Tivaevae capturing the vibrant beauty and unique design so familiar througout the Pacific.
Kowhai is the offical flower of hospice. The design was inspired by the concept of being looked after which is the essence of the service Hospice provides.
The baubles are available exclusivley at Farmers stores at a cost of $10 each – the full $10 will be donated to support hospice services in our community.
So please head into Farmers and purchase these beautiful pieces of art for your Christmas tree and help raise funds for your hospice.
