Rugby's Rotary Club is inviting people to remember loved ones and friends with this year’s Tree of Light.

Money is once again being raised for Rugby Myton Hospice by supporters sending in dedications for the town Christmas tree outside St Andrew’s Parish Church.

Peter Smith, Rotary TOL Coordinator, said: “I give thanks for yet another great response to the appeal last year which enabled over £4,850 to be raised to help continue the work of the hospice here in Rugby.

“This is the time in the year when we always bring to mind those of our nearest and dearest that are no longer with us but stay in our hearts for ever and when we especially treasure their memory.

The ‘Tree of Lights Commemoration Service’ will take place on Tuesday, December 6, at 7pm in St Andrews Parish Church.
