The committee of the Telford Tree of Light and Trustees of The Rotary Clubs of Telford and District Trust Fund are pleased to announce that thanks to the generosity of our contributors and sponsors both financial and in kind, £40,000 from our 2023 appeal/
The Severn Hospice will receive £20,000, Hope House TyGobaith Children Hospices will receive £10,000, and Telford First Responders will receive £10,000.
Dawn Ball from Hope House said
“We are so very thankful that the Telford Tree of Light chose to support Hope House Children’s Hospices again last Christmas. Every single donation we receive means the world to all of us at Hope House and we genuinely couldn’t be more thankful for the support of the Rotary clubs that organise it.
“Our families tell us every day that our hospices are an absolute lifeline for them. The care we provide thanks to donations, such as those from the Tree of Light, is expert, bespoke and life-changing. Thank you.”

Application forms are available at the Tree where you can pay by card or from Customer services, but you can apply any time on-line. Applications received by 18th December will appear in the main display. We will do our best with later applications and publish a supplementary list on 24th December. Names will appear also in the Shropshire Star and Telford Journal as space permits in order of receipt.
Our Tree and Display has changed over the years but our commitment to support local charities and to provide the people of Telford the opportunity to remember their loved ones in the Christmas period remains as strong as ever. In the first year we raised £1,000 last year we distributed £40,000 to local charities. We still only ask for a minimum donation of £5.00 as we did in 1995 but every little will help.
