THE Advertiser will again be supporting the Rotary Club tree of light in Ludlow this Christmas.

It has been a feature of the festive season for a decade and enables people to remember a loved one with a dedication as well as supporting a local charity at the same time.

The tree will be brought into the town in the middle of November and will be switched on at 5pm on Saturday, November 23.

This is one of the biggest days in the town calendar of events as it marks the annual medieval fayre and the illumination of the Town Council Christmas Tree just a short distance away.

As was the case last year, the tree of light will be supporting the Hands Together Ludlow charity.

This charity works to help and support vulnerable people who are in need in and around Ludlow.

This includes a food project to help people on limited means to have a healthy diet.

The project not only aims to reduce food waste by ensuring that it can be used well before it becomes unsuitable for human consumption, but it also benefits many people in the community by providing tasty and nutritious meals.

Another initiative works to tackle loneliness and social isolation.

This is a network of befrienders.
