IATP Tribute Tree

“The living owe it to those who no longer can speak to tell their story for them.”   

Czesław Miłosz 

The Tribute Tree will be at the Annual Dinner for anyone to pay tribute to family & friends that they have sadly lost to Asbestos Related Diseases. It is also there for individual to pay tribute and honour those that are still fighting these awful conditions.

The idea behind the Tribute Tree is not only to allow others to put special messages to their loved ones on, but as a visual reminder of the tragedy asbestos can bring.

There will be no fee to put tags on, but donations are welcome, which will then either be passed on to charity or used to set up some kind of permanent tribute.

To put your tribute on please leave a comment below or email
