Tree of Light
Brigg Town Business Partnership are again organising a Tree of Light which will stand in Chapel Court (just off the Old Courts car park). It will be lit from Saturday November 17th until Saturday January 5th 2019, and will be seen as a symbol of hope and comfort for many people who find Christmas a sad and lonely time.
Date & Location
- Date: 17th November 2018
- Venue: Chapel Court, Brigg
The tree provides an opportunity for all members of the community to place a memory card on it in remembrance of departed loved ones, with cards being available from Saturday November 17th from Design Orchard,E-cig, Cure DM (Formerly Roas), Brigg Carers’ Support Centre, St John’s Church, Brigg, Brigg Methodist Church, The Deli Diner; Co-op Funeralcare, Naylors Funeral Directors, Brigg Tourist Information Centre and Essence Beauty. Raffle tickets will also be available for sale from the same businesses/organisations. The winners will be announced on Saturday January 5th 2019 at 3.30pm.
There will also be a Book of Remembrance at The Tourist Information Centre for those who want to record an entry for a loved one in addition to placing a memory card on the tree.
All monies raised will be donated to the Brigg Carers’ Support Centre who touch the lives of many local individuals and families during difficult times, and to the Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy Fight – a charity run by Cure DM (Formerly Rosa in Brigg), which helps children suffering from a serious muscle wasting condition and supports local families.
An informal dedication service taken by Father Owain will take place on Saturday November 17th at 3.00pm and will be followed by a final service when the tree lights are switched off on Saturday January 5th at 3.00pm. All are very welcome at both services.
