Tree of Thought

Christmas is so often a time when we remember loved ones no longer with us. It is why Bridgnorth Rotary Club’s annual Tree of Thought has become such an integral part of the festive season for so many in the town.

So it will mean a great deal to many in Bridgnorth that the Tree of Thought will be back this year, despite the many restrictions, cancellations and closures in 2020 resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.

The tree will enable people to remember loved ones by dedicating a tag to them and helping Macmillan Cancer Support. There will be changes to the way money is collected, though. To meet social distancing guidelines, the club will be unable to man a table in front of the tree, which in past years enabled supporters to make their donation face to face.

However, there are other ways to donate, dedicate a tag and keep this treasured charity scheme going.

You can fill in the form below and post it in the letterbox attached to the railing around the tree at the top of Cartway from November 17th.

You can also donate and nominate online at the JustGiving page for Bridgnorth Rotary Tree of Thought.

Bridgnorth Rotary Club President Amanda Johnson says, “Bridgnorth Rotary is proud to continue supporting Macmillan by raising money with the Tree of Thought in a year where it has been particularly hard for all charities to raise funds.”

Bridgnorth Rotary Club has provided the town with Christmas trees for over 50 years and this year is is again indebted to Severn Valley Landscapes for providing three trees, two located in the High Street and one in Low Town, as well as to estate agent Nock Deighton for its sponsorship.
