All money raised together with Gift Aid from HMRC is presented to projects and youth groups within Cheddar and surrounding villages with no administration costs taken out.   In 2019, just over 700 was raised, so if you know, or are part of, any project or youth group that needs some assistance, please contact us via this website.

The Dedication Service and lighting of the Tree of Light at The Bath Arms, organised by Cheddar Vale Lions Club, will be recorded at the beginning of  December 2020 when the lights will be officially lit and a Dedication Service held. 

A list of sponsors and those remembered will be posted at the premises by the tree and will be available on request.  It is also intended to display a wooden tree decorated with Stars showing the names of the loved ones in Cheddar.

This project has always been well received throughout the Cheddar Valley so we are delighted to be holding it this year, particularly in light of the pandemic, even though it will be a slightly different format.

Cheddar Vale Lions Club would like to thank the Bath Arms for their help and support with this project.  We also thank all the businesses in the area who take posters and sponsorship forms prior to the event, as well as the local media.

Finally, our thanks must go to all those who sponsor the lights and help raise the money, all of which will go back into supporting the local community.  We hope that providing the Tree of Light  gives you some comfort at this time of year and that it will continue for many years to come.  The sponsor form can be downloaded below.
