Tree of Light 2017
Tree of Light 2017
Date & Location
- Date: 20th November 2017
- Venue: Chapel Court, Brigg
A Tree of Light organised by The Brigg Town Business Partnership will again this year stand in Chapel Court (just off the Old Courts car park). It will be lit from Monday November 20th until Saturday January 6th 2018, and will be seen as a symbol of hope and comfort for many people who find Christmas a sad and lonely time.
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 Monday November 20th from Design Orchard,E-cig, Rosa, Carers’ Support Centre, St John’s Church, Brigg, Brigg Methodist Church, The Deli Diner; Co-op Funeralcare, Naylors Funeral Directors and Brigg Tourist Information Centre. 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 Carers’ Support Centre in Brigg who touch the lives of many local individuals and families during difficult times, and to the Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy Fight – a charity run by 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 Monday November 20th at 5.30pm and will be followed by a final service when the tree lights are switched off on Saturday January 6th at 3.00pm. All are very welcome at both services.
Raffle tickets will also be on sale during the period that the tree is lit with winners announced on Saturday January 6th.
