Tree of Remembrance

    HURT is once again, this year, delighted to be part of the annual Foyle Tree of Remembrance…


    The annual Tree of Remembrance will be located once again outside Foyleside Shopping Centre to give people the opportunity to remember their loved ones and raise vital funds for local charities, HURT, AWARE and the Foyle Foodbank after a difficult year.


    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foyle Tree of Remembrance will also be going virtual so everyone from around the world will be able to submit a message to their loved ones online with their ribbon being placed on the physical tree by one of the team’s (socially distant) elves.


    This allows us to come together while staying apart. You can honour your loved ones by writing a message to them online and this will be placed on to a yellow ribbon on our physical tree. At the same time, this ribbon will support those in need by raising funds for our Charity 🌟💛
