Tree of Light helps Ruth remember her sister Joyce

Ludlow born and bred, nonagenerian Ruth Eades, nee Moreley, enjoys remebering her sister Joyce and Joyce’s husband Roy Wilton by making a dedication each year to the Ludlow Tree of Light. Ruth has been making dedications very year since the Tree of Light started in 2008 and sees it is an opportunity to remember happy times and show she still thinks of her sister and her sister’s family.  Her message this year reads, Much loved sister Joyce and brother-in-law Roy. Greatly missed every day with love from Ruth

Rotarian Sue Fleetwood, who has been helping to collate the dedications over the last ten years, said “We are very grateful to some families who have supported the Tree of Light year after year. I also enjoy entering dedications celebrating grandchildren. You can see new names being added, year on year. It’s a public way of expressing remembering and celebrating, as well as helping the chosen charities. Over the years the Tree of Light has raised thousands of pounds for local charities.” This year’s charity is Hope House Hospice.

Most dedications are handwritten but for those who prefer to donate electronically the Tree of Light now has an online site at Dedication forms are available in Ludlow at Hope House Hospice shop, Nock Deighton’s office and St Laurence’s Church or can be downloaded from where you can find this year’s dedications to date. The final list will appear in the Ludlow Advertiser and in the Book of Celebration and Remembrance in St Laurence’s Church.
