The Lake District Tree of Light

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. All money collected  goes to the charities. The charity has been in existance for many years, and is organised by the Rotary Club of Keswick who will be out and about in Keswick collecting from generous visitors to Keswick and locals alike. 

This is our main fundraising activity in the run up to Christmas and to-date has raised over £35,000 . Collections are held in Keswick and in Booth’s . 

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
