Telford Tree of Light Raises £753,000 for Local Charities
2021 marked the 26th year of The Telford Tree of Light at Telford Centre, and with another year of amazing fund raising, over £753,000 has now been raised to support local charities.
The Tree of Light, which is organised by the four Rotary clubs of Telford, returned to the centre in November 2021, providing the people of Telford the opportunity to remember their loved ones during the Christmas period. The names of loved ones could be added to the tree, with all donations made going to local charities.
During 2021, a magnificent total of £41,040 has been raised to support; Severn Hospice, Hope House and Ty Gobaith, Telford Mind, Telford and Wrekin CVS, Lingen Davies Cancer Fund and Southall School.
Katie Broome, Marketing Manager at Telford Centre said: “We are so pleased to be able to welcome the Tree of Light to Telford Centre each year. The tree is such an important part of the community and the donations made make such a huge difference to the charities being supported”
Peter Seaward, Chairman of the Rotary Trustees said: “ This sum brings the total for 26 years to over £753,000. A fantastic amount donated by the generous community of Telford and beyond over the years. The appeal would not be possible without the sponsorship and support of the area's business community, especially Telford Centre and the Rotary volunteers”
The Tree of Light will return to Telford Centre in November 2022. Applications to remember loved ones can be made at any time but will not be displayed until November or why not become a sponsor, details can be found at www.telfordtreeoflight.org.uk.
