BRIGG TREE OF LIGHT 2018 WILL REMEMBER DEPARTED LOVED ONES
A very special event will be taking place in Brigg town centre on Saturday (November 17).
The Tree of Light will be dedicated at an informal service taken by Father Owain Mitchell in Chapel Court at 3pm.
It provides an opportunity for members of the community to place a memory card on its branched in remembrance of departed loved ones.
Cards will be available from Saturday onwards as Design Orchard, E-cig, Cure DM (Formerly Rosa), Brigg Carers’ Support Centre, St John’s Church, Brigg Methodist Church, The Deli Diner, Co-op Funeralcare, Naylor’s Funeral Directors, Brigg Tourist Information Centre, Café Courtyard and Essence Beauty.
Raffle tickets will also be available for sale from the same outlets, the winners to be announced on Saturday January 5th 2019 at 3.30pm.
There will also be a Book of Remembrance at The Tourist Information Centre for those who want to record an entry for a loved one in addition to placing a memory card on the tree.
Those names will be read out on Saturday, 5th January.
All monies raised will be donated to the Brigg Carers’ Support Centre, who touch the lives of many local individuals and families during difficult times, and to the Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy Fight – a charity run by Cure DM (Formerly Rosa), which helps children suffering from a serious muscle wasting condition and supports local families.
There will be followed by another service when the tree lights are switched off on January 5th at 3.00pm.
Everyone will be very welcome at both services.
Brigg Town Business Partnership says it would like to thank Scunthorpe Rotary Club, Brigg Rotary Club, Andrew Naylors Funeralcare and Co-op Funeralcare, and the Nisa store on Queen Street for their generous support of the Tree of Light.
