Horsham’s community Christmas Tree sponsors gathered in the Carfax today to officially launch this independently funded project
The sponsors are all local businesses and organisations and comprise of, The District Post, Lello Business, AToM, Wakefields Jewellers, The Rotary Club of Horsham, Swan Walk, Visit Horsham, Byjove Media, Mansell McTaggart, South East Hearing Care Centres, Henfield Hire, Mancini Legal, Slinfold Golf and Country Club, The Horsham Mortgage Centre, Muffin Break, Mungo’s Bar, Fresh Traditions, Cote Brasserie, Piries Bar, Set4Success, Bill’s and Mia Philips Therapy.
It is hoped the tree will boost footfall for all local businesses and enhance the Christmas feel in town in the run up to the big day.
The organisers would like the tree to be a springboard for a major public charitable donation campaign supporting St Catherine’s Hospice, Chestnut Tree House and Age UK – Horsham District. Every individual making a donation will have their name printed on the panels attached to the picket fence at the base of the tree.
The intention is that donators will come to look for their names and take photographs. You can make your donation by visiting the specially set up “Horsham Christmas Tree Appeal” on www.gofundme.com
You can also help spread the word and keep up to date on all things tree related by visiting, liking and sharing the Facebook page @horshamchristmastree
