Bridlington Rotary Club are appealing for donations for their annual Christmas Tree Festival.

The event, set to feature more than 60 decorated and illuminated Christmas trees donated by churches, charities, schools and local business, will take place at St John’s Burlington Methodist Church from 4-6 and 11-13 December.

The opening ceremony will take place on 4 December at 10am before the Gale Concert at 7pm featuring Driffield Male Voice Choir and Bay Junior School choir with tickets priced at £5.

The church will be open for viewing throughout the day during the festival with refreshments available in the schoolroom.

Festival organiser John Fisher said: “We are very much looking forward to the event this year. It has been highly successful in the last two years and we are hoping for more Christmas trees than ever before.”

The festival will come to an end on Sunday 13 December at 4.30pm with performances from Churches Together Choir and Coastal Voices singing familiar Christmas carol classics.

Anyone who would like to donate a tree for the festival should call John on 01262 851785 or email john@crowle75.fsnet.co.uk.

All proceeds from the festival will go towards St Catherine’s Hospice and Rotary Charities.
