The Tree of Light Dramatically illuminates the eastern approach to Keswick over the Christmas season.

The Tree of Light dramatically illuminates the eastern approach to Keswick over the Christmas season. Traditionally illuminated during the Christmas Lights switch-on in Keswick in late November, the Tree of Light is a successful charity event . Individuals are invited to sponsor a light to celebrate the memory of a lost loved one, a special occasion or even just to celebrate Christmas. 100% of all money collected  goes to charity. The Tree of Light charity has been in existance for many years, and is organised by the Rotary Club of Keswick. We are usually out and about in Keswick collecting from generous visitors to Keswick and locals alike. However this year is very different and there will unfortunately be no collection points due to Covid 19. To donate this year please download a copy of the form and complete as directed.

To print the form, left click on the form in the photos above, then right click and select "save image as" and save to your computer. You can then open the file from this location and print it,  or email david.quainton123@btinternet.com and a form will be sent to you. 

This is our main fundraising activity in the run up to Christmas and to-date has raised over £35,000. 

More than 6,000 lights illuminate the tree, which is near the cenotaph, and this makes a welcoming sight at the entrance to the town and is a symbol of the generosity of those who have donated to the tree in celebration of the life of a loved one or of a special occasion.

In the last 3 years our main beneficiaries of the fund raising have been Carlisle and North Lakes Hospice at Home , Eden Hospice and Jigsaw ( hospice for children ) and the Great North Air Ambulance. In 2020 our main beneficiary will be Carlisle and North Lakes Hospice at Home
