The Macmillan Tree of Light at St. Marks has raised a total of £840 thanks to kind shopper donations, an increase of over £300 in comparison to 2014.

From the 28th November, visitors were able to remember and celebrate their loved ones by placing tiny battery powered lights on the tree in remembrance of someone affected by cancer.

Visitors were also able to pay tribute to loved ones by writing a message to go inside the lights special buckets before hanging them on the tree.

The tree, which was installed in conjunction with Macmillan and Lincoln BIG was present at the centre throughout the Christmas period and received a total of 150 bucket decorations on the tree.

Fiona Goldsby, Merry Macs leader said:

Christmas is a key time for remembering loved ones, which is why the Merry Macs and Lincoln BIG wanted to work with St. Marks again to let visitors take a moment to reflect on family and friends.

We’d like to thank everyone who supported Macmillan with their donations.

Centre Manager, Valerie Johnson commented:

We’d like to thank all visitors to St. Marks who contributed to the Macmillan Tree of Light. The donations go to a truly amazing cause and we hope to work with Macmillan again during 2016.
