Christmas is time for celebration but also when our thoughts inevitably turn to loved ones who are no longer with us. It is why the Bridgnorth Rotary Club’s annual Tree of Thought has become such an integral part of the festive season for so many in the town.
For a donation, people can remember their loved ones by dedicating a tag to them, which is the displayed on the tree. The donations raise vital funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. Bridgnorth Rotary raised over £2,000 for Macmillan last year despite the challenges of the pandemic and a deepening economic crisis which saw increasing cases of hardship.
There are three ways you can donate:
Fill in the form on the opposite page and post it in the letterbox attached to the railing around the tree at the top of Cartway from November 25th
Donate through JustGiving https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/bridgnorthtreeofthought. Please leave a message with your loved one’s name and it will be displayed on the tree.
Donate in person. Rotarians will be by the Tree of Thought on all Saturdays in December leading up to Christmas. They will also be there on Christmas Lighting up Night on Friday 25th November, 4-8pm. Face to face donations can be made at these times.
Bridgnorth Rotary Club President for 2022/2023 Dermott Creece said, “The Tree of Thought is such an excellent way to remember loved ones and to support the vital work of Macmillan Cancer Support.
“Bridgnorth Rotary Club has provided the town with Christmas trees for over 50 years. This year we are indebted to Severn Valley Landscapes for providing the trees as well as to Nock Deighton Estate Agency for its sponsorship.”
