Hospice invites community to Celebrate a Life

Annual campaign kicks off Dec. 1 at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre

As the holiday season approaches, the White Rock South Surrey Hospice is preparing the small paper doves symbolizing lost loved ones for their journey as part of the annual Celebrate-A-Life campaign.

The white doves – also known as sacred doves – are often used to symbolize peace, according to a news release from the hospice. Those who have lost loved ones are invited by the hospice to write their name on a dove, which will then be placed on the Celebrate-A-Life Dove Tree in Semiahmoo Shopping Centre.

“Our paper doves’ journey begins when multiple sheets of doves roll off the press. The doves are then removed from the sheets in preparation for the next step, decorating each dove with subtle rays of colour,” hospice associate director Paddy Godbehere says in the release. “Once the glitter dries, ribbons are added.”

The campaign begins Dec. 1. For more information, visit www.whiterockhospice.org
