Tree of Light -  DECEMBER 2018 @ Cheddar Garden Centre

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 2017, just over 700 has been 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 Cheddar Garden Centre organised by Cheddar Vale Lions Club, was held on 7th December 2017 when the lights were officially switched on and the Service was led on by Lois Emms, Methodist Lay Preacher.  Carols were played by the Cheddar Valley Music Club. 

The list of sponsors and those remembered is posted at the premises and is available on request.

The project has once again been well received throughout the Cheddar Valley and beyond.  To date sponsorship of the lights has raised 600 to which we have added money claimed back from the Government Gift Aid scheme. 

Cheddar Vale Lions Club would like to thank the Manager for allowing the use of the premises and all staff at the Cheddar Garden Centre for their help.  We 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 this money, all of which will go back into the local community early in 2019.  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.
