Rotary Club Of Warwick

Dec3 - Lights of Love

 “Shine a light for loved ones”

The annual Lights of Love appeal was launched by the Rotary Club of Warwick, with the Mayor switching on the lights on the tree in Market Square, Warwick last Thursday (27th November) as part of the Victorian evening celebrations.

People can dedicate a message remembering a loved one, and last year over 400 names and messages were put on the tree raising over £2,500. This year’s collection will be split between the Mayors charities and Macmillan Cancer Support

All are invited to get involved by paying to put a message up in memory of someone special who cannot be with them this Christmas.

Organiser Roger Smith said “People never forget those they have lost, but Christmas makes us aware of those that aren’t with us. Putting their names and a message on the tree gives us a chance to remember them and means they are part of the town too”.

To get your message on the tree fill in a form available at Warwick Post Office, Tourist Information Office, Claridges, or Torreys Hardware in West Street, or download one from  the Lights of Love website, where further details are also given.   Messages can be received until Christmas Eve.

A Dedication service will be held in Market Square on Sunday December 14th when carols and readings will be accompanied by Warwick Marching Band.
