TIPTON CHRISTMAS TREE OF LIGHT APPEAL 2018


   

Dear Friends,
The Tipton Civic Society, with the support of the Tipton and Coseley Building Society, is once again organising this year’s Tree of Light to give local people the opportunity to remember lost loved ones at Christmas time whilst helping to raise money for local charities. Last Christmas over 1000 names were recorded on the roll of remembrance around the tree and £6,000 was raised and distributed to the following charities:

Acorn Children’s Hospice. Sandwell Mayor’s Charity.
Action Heart at Russells Hall. Sandwell Advocacy.
Beacon Centre for the Blind. Sandwell Crossroads Care.
Dudley Prostate Cancer Charity. Sandwell Visually Impaired.
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. Tipton Listeners Service.
Murray Hall Community Trust. Tipton Youth Project.

If you have taken part in the past I am sure that you will want to do so again. For those of you who have not yet participated please give a thought this year to supporting this appeal which has be- come a real focus of community thanksgiving, remembrance and celebration in Tipton at Christmas time.

Thank you,
Ray Brothwood MBE,
Honorary President,
Tipton Civic Society.

The Tipton Civic Society was formed in 1988 to promote interest in the history, heritage and identity of Tipton. In 2010 the Society took over the running of the Tree of Light Appeal the Tipton Rotary Club following its demise and since that date has raised £45,000 for local charities. Further information on the Tipton Civic Society can be found on its website at www.tiptoncivicsociety.co
