How to Become a Sponsor

The Rotary Clubs of Telford and District Trust Fund Telford Tree of Light Sponsorship – 2019 campaign

You may well be aware of the Telford Tree of Light. This is an organisation which exists to give local people the facility to remember their loved ones at Christmas by making a donation which is passed on to a number of local charities. This year we have been able to donate £42,000 to local good causes, and over the life of the project we have now made donations totalling in excess of £628,000. This magnificent sum has been helped considerably by our business sponsors, whose help has meant that each year we have been able to guarantee that every penny donated by members of the public has been passed on to local charities. We have also been honoured to be awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This prestigious award – the equivalent of an M.B.E. for voluntary organisations – was presented to us by the Lord Lieutenant of Shropshire in October 2017. We are now planning our campaign for 2019 and will be aiming to raise at least the same amount as last year. You can help by committing to sponsor us this year to ensure that we can build on our successes of previous years.
