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 then 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 increasing prices which caused many people increased financial anxiety.

There are three ways you can donate:

  • Fill in the form below and post it in the letterbox attached to the railing around the tree at the top of Cartway from 24th November
  • 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 24th November, 4-8pm. Face to face donations can be made at these times.

Bridgnorth Rotary Club President for 2023/2024 Amanda Johnson 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.”

Rotary is a worldwide organisation with over 1.2 million members. Bridgnorth Rotary Club’s meetings focus on fun and companionship as well as fundraising and working for the good of this area and those further afield.
