HospiceWits Tree of Light Ceremony

Posted: December 13, 2015

Tree of Light 1 [800x600]HospiceWits will host its annual Tree of Light tree-lighting ceremony on Sunday, 13 December at the Joburg Zoo, starting at 17:00 and continuing until 20:00. Entrance is a R25 donation per adult, and kids under twelve get in free.

Jacqui Kaye, CEO of HospiceWits, says the event is a wonderful opportunity for families to bring their blankets and picnic baskets and soak up the beautiful sounds of a Marimba band, sing along to their favourite Christmas carols and enjoy a performance by the soulful X-Factor UK 2012 participant, Leanne Dlamini.

Visitors can also purchase a remembrance globe at the event in celebration of life and love or to pay tribute to lost loved ones for R70 for individuals and R350 for corporates. Globes can also be purchased online at tree-of-light.co.za. All funds go towards the care and support of HospiceWits patients with life-limiting illness and their families.

“We’re honoured to be part of a community that’s engaged and plays a part in ensuring that all patients and families needing the care, comfort and support of the HospiceWits team can receive our services. We invite all to share in the joy with those who will be gathered at the Joburg Zoo on Sunday to celebrate life and honour the memory of loved ones while supporting a worthy cause,” says Kaye.

Andrew Fradd, Group MD of Mortimer Harvey says, “Mortimer Harvey is proud to support the invaluable work that HospiceWits performs for the community, and we hope that everyone will participate in this event in aid of HospiceWits and the patients and families they care for.”
