Cheddar Vale Lions Club is inviting people to remember their loved ones by sponsoring the Tree Of Light.

The project, which is in its fifth year, enables people to buy a light on the tree, which this year will be placed at Cheddar Garden Centre.

People who purchase a light will received a handwritten card from the lions thanking them for their donation.

The sponsors are then invited to come along to the lighting up ceremony on December 7 at 6.30pm where there will be a dedication ceremony, music, carols and mulled wine.

A club spokesman said: “The money raised makes a difference. If we have a request, for a piece of equipment for a disabled child, a group or anyone in need in our community, we can consider it, and there will be some money there to help where it can.”

The minimum donation is £5 and forms can be found at www.cheddarvalelions.org.uk or in Cheddar Garden Centre.
