Tree of Light 2017

Tree of Light 2017 – Woolston Christmas Festival

We’re delighted to announce that we’re launching our 9th Tree of Light event, where one of the beautiful pines in the Woolston Millennium Garden is covered in hundreds of sponsored lights to commemorate loved ones and special causes. Everyone is invited to support the work of Communicare by sponsoring a light (or lights) for a minimum £5 per light in memory of a loved one or special cause. With the support of The Echo, we hope to publish those names and have a memorial book made to include the names of all who are remembered. The memorial book will also include any photographs, short poems/verses and tributes sent to us. If you would like to send in any of these items for inclusion (1 per person) please email them to or drop them in to one of our offices (office locations can be found here) by 9th December 2017. Please note that photographs will not be returned.

We’d love for you to join us for the tree lights’ switch on Saturday 2nd December at 4.30pm in the Woolston Millennium Garden. Communicare is grateful to Woolston Millennium Garden, Southern Daily Echo, Spectrum Signs and Woolston Traders for their support in promoting and running the event.
