Remembering your loved ones at Christmas
Christmas is a time for families, for remembering, for celebrating and for giving; it is at times such as this that the loss of a loved one can be most keenly felt.
The name and the symbolism of our Rotary Tree of Light are reminders that there is light and hope in the bleakest circumstances. The Tree of Light allows sponsors to remember loved ones at Christmas time whilst at the same time raising funds for charities and worthwhile causes which support others who are in need.
The Evesham Rotary’s Tree of Light was launched in 1999. The tree is a 90′ high redwood tree which nestles on the north bank of the River Avon close to the centre of town. When lit with over 1000 lights, its prominent position allows it to be seen from many miles around. The Evesham Tree of Light successfully donates around £15,000 a year back to the community.
The Switch On – Thursday 24th November 2022
We are delighted that, with the help of local councillors, we have been able to arrange for the Workman Bridge to be closed for the period of the Switch On. The event will be held on the forecourt of the Methodist Church and on the Bridge. The Switch On will also be supported by the Town Mayor, local clergy and the Bretforton band. We will be pleased if you join us, join in with singing Christmas carols and enjoying mince pies and fruit punch.
