Tree of Remembrance
Our Club's flagship project helps raise funds to support local charities
Every December the Limerick Thomond Rotary Club has run its annual Tree of Remembrance on Bedford Row. The tree provides a public space where people remember loved ones who have passed on or who are unable to be at home for the Christmas. People write the name of a loved one on a yellow ribbon and have it placed on the tree. There is no charge and voluntary donations are accepted.
The project has been running in partnership with Limerick City and County Council since 2009 and has raised over €150,000 for local charities and to support Rotary’s charities including its drive to eradicate polio from the world.
Charities interested in being considered for the 2018 project should contact the Club before September.
