There was a big turnout of locals and holidaymakers for the annual Hospice Tree of Lights and Carols by Candlelight at the Port Alfred Hospital grounds on December 20. The event, always a popular one on the festive season calendar, is a time to remember a loved one lost to cancer or other illness by lighting a candle, with donations going to the community work of Sunshine Coast Hospice. The Port Alfred Baptist Church worship band led the carol service and pastor Josh de Wit delivered a message focusing people’s thoughts on the birth of Jesus the Messiah. JON HOUZET took pictures.
