Eastbourne Tree Of Light


The Christmas tree outside the Congress Theatre always looks a little different to others around the town, that is because it is a special tree, a “Tree of Light” covered in a host of white lights and dressed with white ribbons in memory of loved ones.

We are delighted to be back at the Congress Theatre for our dedication service at 4.00pm on Sunday 5th December. Our special tree, situated outside the theatre, gives an opportunity to remember someone special at Christmas. There will be readings, songs, and music from the Salvation Army, and you will have the opportunity to tie a ribbon to the tree yourselves.

Rotary would like to say a special thank you to our sponsors past and present. Their generosity in 2020 enabled the Rotary Clubs to donate a total of £8,100 among the following: Beachy Head Chaplancy, Children with Cancer, CRUSE Bereavement Care, Defiant Sports, Homes for Homeless, The Salvation Army,Matthew 25 Mission and Eastbourne Lifeboats.

Rotarian Melanie Adams said, “I would like to say a special thank you to our sponsors and supporters whose generosity has enabled the Rotary Clubs to make these donations to such worthwhile charities working in our local community”.
