The Tree of Light

Raising Funds for local and Rotary Charities       
The Evesham Rotary’s Tree of Light was launched in 1999 and provides the opportunity for local residents to remember a loved one at Christmas, whilst raising funds for local charities and good causes.
The tree itself is a 90' high redwood tree which nestles on the north bank of the River Avon close to the centre of town. When lit with over 1000 lights, its prominent position allows it to be seen from many miles around.
Having marked over 20 successful years of the campaign at the close of 2019, the Evesham Tree of Light Appeal successfully donates around £15,000 a year back to the community.

Want to remember your loved ones at Christmas?

There is an opportunity each year to remember a loved one at Christmas and to support local and Rotary charities. This will be open for names and donations to be received each year from October.

Christmas is a time for families, for remembering, for celebrating and for giving; it is at times such as this that the loss of a loved one can be most keenly felt.
The name and the symbolism of our Rotary Tree of Light are reminders that there is light and hope in the bleakest circumstances. The Tree of Light allows sponsors to remember loved ones at Christmas time whilst at the same time raising funds for charities and worthwhile causes which support others who are in need.
Everyone that chooses to donate receives a personal thank you card from the Tree of Light, where all names of those remembered are published in the Evesham Journal and the Tree of Light Book of Remembrance, which is displayed annually in the town Library.
We also list them on our very own website.
