The Telford Tree of Light is run by a small committee of Rotarians drawn from the four Rotary Clubs in Telford.
This committee takes all the decisions on behalf of the members of the four Rotary Clubs, makes all necessary arrangements, and ensures that the whole operation runs smoothly and in accordance with the wishes of the members of the four clubs.
The committee also processes the applications for sponsorship, prepares the lists of the names for publication in the Telford Journal and for display around the Tree in Telford Shopping Centre, in Carol's Cafe in Wellington Market, the offices of Tranter Lowe in Oakengates and Dawley, Truffles Cafe in Ironbridge and on this website. It also mails mementoes to sponsors.
The concept of the Tree of Light was introduced to Shropshire from South Africa in the 1990's by Rev Paul Firman a member of Shawbury and Mid-Shropshire Rotary Club.
