We are extremely grateful to the Telford Tree of Light which has donated £10,500 to us from its annual Christmas display.

The Telford Tree of Light is run by the four Rotary clubs of Telford and enables the community to remember their loved ones at Christmas, while supporting local charities like us.

Lynsey Kilvert, fundraiser, said: "We were truly overwhelmed to receive your donation of £10,500 - it just goes to show how much the local community appreciates all your hard work in ensuring the Tree of Light continues each year even in a pandemic.

"Words cannot come close to expressing how important your incredible support is to us in these unprecedented times as reported in the media, charities are facing an uncertain future as donations plummet and fundraising events are cancelled."

Telford Tree of Light chairman Frank Curry added: "We have a great team of Rotarians and friends to help us but the generosity of the community in remembering their loved ones is overwhelming."
