Hospice Waikato Memory Stars

logoHere’s a  great way to help remember our loved ones at Christmas time…Make a donation to Hospice Waikato and get a memory star to remember a loved one at Christmas this year.  The stars are available from the iSite at the back of Garden Place.  You can also decorate them there if you do not have time to hang them yourself.

Be as creative as you want. Add messages, drawings or decorations and dedicate your star to a loved one. Your special memory star will then help decorate the beautiful big Christmas tree in Garden Place.
