The Tree of Remembrance

l-r, President Elect Richard Horrell, Rtn Richard Walton, Rtn Stuart Williams, Rtn Mike Colley and President Paul Lockley

The Tree of Remembrance was officially opened by President Paul on Saturday 17th November. The names of those loved ones remembered are mounted in the cabinets shown below with a message from family or friends. This year to mark the 100th Anniversary of the end of The Great War there are also, mounted in the cabinets, poignant messages and photographs in memory of those who fought and often lost their lives in the conflict.
The Tree of Remembrance has raised over £100,000 since its start in 2004. This year’s charities include; Compton Care, The M.S. Therapy Centre, The Haven (Wolverhampton), Help for Heroes and The Rotary Club of Wolverhampton’s Rotary Charities.
