Christmas in Sunderland: St Benedict's Hospice to launch Dedication Tree at Bridges shopping centre

Families are being invited to remember their loved ones this Christmas at a special tree in a Sunderland shopping centre.

St Benedict’s Hospice will launch its annual Dedication Tree at the Bridges shopping centre on Monday, November 28. It will remain in place until Sunday, December 11, giving families plenty of time to go and pay tribute to someone special to them, or donate to the hospice’s vital work.

Members of the public are invited to visit the tree, which will be outside Primark, and write a message for a loved one. It will then be placed on the tree, before later being displayed at the hospice, in Ryhope, over the festive period.
