With hundreds of candles alight in memory of the many Fathers being acknowledged on the night, guests’ reflections were further inspired by the moving service conducted by Celebrant Janis Tait.

The Reflection Spaces provided a beautiful space for the service, held in collaboration with Templeton Family Funerals.

On arrival guests wrote a personal note of thoughts and wishes, with many making a donation to the local charity City Life.

A representative of City Life attended the service to receive the community donations and was moved by the generosity of the guests attending.
