The Tree of Light, organised by Rugby Rotary, gives residents the chance to remember their loved ones and raise funds for a good cause.

Rugbeians can sponser a name to be displayed on the huge Christmas tree outside St Andrew's Church.

All the money that is donated will be given to Rugby Myton Hospice to assist them in their work to give support and palliative care in Rugby.

Part of the appeal, which is in its 21st year, is a service - to be held this year at St Andrew’s on Tuesday, December 10 at 7pm.

A spokesperson for Rugby Rotary, which organises the tree every year, said: "This is a community service open to everyone for a special time of reflection as we all remember those loved ones we have lost and to especially celebrate the lives that meant so much to us.

"Therefore, you are all invited to come together at this special time of the year remembering those who have that special place in our hearts.

"As we come towards the end of the third week of the Tree of Light Appeal and you read the latest dedications, the President of the Rotary Club of Rugby and the Clergy of St Andrews send an invitation to you all to this very special memorial service."

People can still sponsor lights on the tree.

Sponsor forms can be found print copies of the Rugby Advertiser and at the back of St Andrew’s.

Rugby Rotary asks for a minimum of £5 to be donated with each dedication.
