Hospice Memorial Tree

Are you considering not sending Christmas Cards this year? As an alternative, you can help to support our vital hospice services by sponsoring a light on our Annual Memorial Tree.

All Waterfordians are familiar with the Rotary Memorial Tree in John Roberts Square; and many of us have remembered our loved ones there over the years. 

A great way to keep up that Christmas tradition, even if you're living away from home, is to avail of our online option. There's also a beautiful 'Book of Remembrance'. Each light costs just €5 and will shine throughout the festive season.

As well as raising much needed funds, the Memorial Tree provides people with a means of remembering their loved ones, and has become an integral part of Christmas celebrations in Waterford City, culminating in the annual Christmas Eve Carol Service at the Tree.

What Our Members Say

“Tom Murphy Car Sales Ltd has been a member of Waterford Chamber of Commerce for over 25 years.

It’s a membership that serves us well as we find it gives us a platform to interact with similar businesses and puts us in front of a wide audience.  Having staged a number of very successful Chamber events, both at our dealership on the Cork Road and at venues chosen by the Chamber, it really puts into perspective the value of networking and meeting with potential customers face to face.

We intend to continue the partnership between Waterford Chamber of Commerce and Tom Murphy Car Sales into the future, as the results speak for themselves and we see the value in being a member of Waterford Chamber.”
