Our Club's flagship project helps raise funds to support local organisations and charities
Please use the donate button to make a donation
Each December since 2009 Limerick Thomond Rotary Club has run its annual Remembrance Tree on Bedford Row. The tree provides a public space for people to remember loved ones who have passed on or who are unable to be with them for the Christmas. People write the name of a loved one on a yellow ribbon and have it placed on the tree.
The project has been running in partnership with Limerick City and County Council since 2009 and has raised over €190,000 for local organisations and charities and to support Rotary’s charities including its drive to eradicate polio from the world.
This year, the tree has become a virtual one. You can enter the name of a loved one you want to remember using our virtual ribbon above. There is no charge for the ribbon and voluntary donations are accepted using the donate button above via Paypal.
The beneficaries for the 2020 Virtual Tree are Pieta House and Cuan Mhuire. Pieta provides free therapy to those engaging in self-harm, with suicidal ideation, or bereaved by suicide. Cuan Mhuire is Ireland's largest voluntary provider of addiction treatment services and residential rehabilitation. Limerick Thomond Rotary is delighted to support such worthwhile causes which are so important locally in Limerick. Names placed on our virtual ribbons will be placed on the altar at a Remembrance service which will take place in the Augustinians Church, O'Connell St. Limerick in the New Year (Date & time to be confirmed through our social media pages).
Thank you for supporting the Limerick Thomond Rotary Remembrance Tree.
