advent_11The Horncastle Tree of Light will be lit on Friday December 11th.

Christmas is a time for families and friends, for celebrating and for giving; it also offers a chance to remember the loss of loved ones and to think about those less fortunate than ourselves. In the past few years through the generosity of our donors, it has been possible to donate £15,000 to the hospices serving our local area. 2015/16 will be the fifth year of the Tree of Light in Horncastle. The Lions and Rotary Clubs are hoping that we can continue to raise lots of money for these truly worthy causes. Details here
