Tree of Light ap­peal launched

Black Country Bugle - - YOUR LETTERS -

THE Tip­ton Civic So­ci­ety has launched the 2018 Tip­ton Christ­mas Tree of Light Ap­peal to raise money for lo­cal char­i­ties. The Ap­peal raises money from do­na­tions in re­mem­brance of lost loved ones at Christ­mas time. Names are en­tered onto a Roll of Re­mem­brance dis­played around the Tree of Light out­side St Martin’s and St Paul’s Church in Owen Street.

This is the ninth year that the Tip­ton Civic So­ci­ety has run the ap­peal, which over that time has raised £45,000 for lo­cal good causes and be­come a real fo­cus of com­mu­nity thanks­giv­ing and re­mem­brance in Tip­ton at Christ­mas.

The Tree of Light will be switched on by the Mayor of Sandwell, Coun­cil­lor Joy Edis, on Fri­day, 30th Novem­ber, fol­low­ing a spe­cial ded­i­ca­tion ser­vice com­menc­ing at 7pm. Ow­ing to the re­cent sad clo­sure of the church, the ser­vice will be held in a mar­quee, pro­vided by the Tip­ton Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion, in Unity Walk, but will, as usual, fea­ture car­ols and Christ­mas songs by the choir of Tip­ton Green Pri­mary School.

A do­na­tion of £5 is re­quested for a name to be en­tered on the Roll of Re­mem­brance. Do­na­tion forms can be ob­tained from Tip­ton Li­braries and the of­fice of the Tip­ton and Cose­ley Build­ing So­ci­ety, who gen­er­ously spon­sor the event. Also from my­self, So­ci­ety Chair­man Keith Hodgkins by ring­ing 0121 520 0080. Keith Hodgkins Chair­man, Tip­ton Civic So­ci­ety
