Friend of the centre Steve Cram popped into the Bridges on Monday 20th November to launch the St. Benedict’s dedication tree.

Steve hung the first bauble, which was dedicated to his late Aunt Joy, who sadly passed away this year.

Shoppers and visitors are encouraged to pop over to the tree, where they can donate what they can and make a dedication on the paper bauble to loved ones and then hang the bauble on the tree.

The giving tree, which is provided by St. Benedict’s Hospice, has returned after another fundraising success in 2016, where just over £10,000 was raised from its time in the Bridges.

We think we can help beat that figure this year! Please pop by and say hi tot he fundraising team. The tree is here in the centre right up to Christmas.
