HospiceWits Tree of Light 2020: Get your globe at these centres

Whilst the HospiceWits Tree of Light picnic and tree-lighting ceremony won’t be taking place as usual this year due to challenges posed by the Covid-19 outbreak, this annual fundraising event is still taking place in the online sphere.

Featuring a virtual tree instead of the brightly lit arboreal giant that HospiceWits supporters have grown used to, this year’s Tree of Light is now more accessible than ever before, enabling people from across the world shine their own light in remembrance or in honour of a loved one. The virtual HospiceWits Tree of Light has already garnered many donations and beautiful dedications to family and friends who have passed.

In order to make it as easy as possible for our supporters to make donations, help us meet our day-to-day financial needs and provide essential care to patients in Johannesburg and surrounds, HospiceWits will be visible in a number of shopping centres where donations can be made and globes to place on the virtual Tree of Light can be purchased.
