THE TREE OF LIGHT

The Tree of Light is shining bright in Eastgate Street, Gloucester. COVID-19 restrictions mean we couldn’t hold our usual spectacular celebration of Christmas but have still  launched Christmas in Gloucester with a huge tree adorned with thousands of lights. The pandemic has now locked down our ability to collect cash near the Tree to support our Gloucestershire charities just when they need it most. 

Please, please support the Tree of Light by leaving a message and make a small donation to help us help others. Every                                                   penny counts and goes directly to support our local causes.

The Tree of Light is the perfect way this Christmas, after such a difficult year, to remember a loved one, to wish someone good luck for the New Year or just to send a message out to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, whilst raising money for three local Gloucestershire charities.

What does the Rotary Tree of Light mean to you…?
‘It’s like doing something for the person that is not there anymore’. It shows that they are not forgotten’.

‘It is like sharing a moment with them. Like sharing a memory of a time gone by’.

‘It is about saying you still love them. It helps me to feel they are still part of my Christmas’.

‘It says that I have not forgotten those who have been part of my life. It is a symbol of my love’.

Gloucester’s Spectacular Tree!

The Rotary Club of Gloucester’s Tree of Light is a 40-foot high fir tree taking pride of place outside Gloucester Guildhall in the heart of the city centre. This is the 10th year of the Tree of Light and during that time your generous donations and sponsorship of over £60,000 have helped us support dozens of local charities. This year your support is more vital than ever and we hope you can donate and log your message.

About The Tree

The Tree of Light gives people the opportunity to display a message for family and friends or commemorate a loved one at Christmas time. You can sponsor a message to be shown here and by making this donation you are also raising valuable funds for our local charities.

Your support this year is more important than ever for local charities so make a donation and help us to help Gloucestershire causes.

In memory of my Dad Mike Cass. You may be gone but you are very much still alive in the lessons you taught me that I am passing onto my son and daughter. It's a shame you never got to meet your grandchildren as you would have made a great grandfather. Love and miss you always. Matt
