Thanks to the amazing generosity of local people, families, businesses and schools, Bournville Village Trust is happy to announce that we’ve now reached our target for the Bournville Christmas Tree Lights Appeal – 21 days earlier than anticipated.
A huge thank you to everyone who sponsored a bulb on the new lights.
From the beautiful dedication messages that have been left on the Just Giving page and website – it’s clear how important the tree is to you.
You can read the dedication messages on our website here. Please note that this page will soon be updated with more names and messages.
The new lights, which are more energy efficient but just as bright, will be switched on this Thursday (1st December 2016) at 7pm.
Volunteers from Bournville Village Council organise the Lights Switch on event, which is always very special and popular.
Any additional money raised from the appeal will now be donated to Selly Manor Museum, which relies partly on public funding to run and is another fantastic community asset.
