The Charity Committee at Argus Insurance Company (Europe) Limited have organised a 6m Christmas Tree to be set up opposite Regal House in the corner below the American Memorial Steps.
Argus Insurance is funding the Christmas Tree and Decorations and have raised funds for Charity by asking companies in the vicinity to donate to the charities in exchange for their logo to be included on the banner around the tree.
There will be a tree lighting event on 6th December 2017 at 6.00pm when the Choir from Governors Meadow First School will sing carols, and there will be dancing by the Mediterranean Dance Group. We shall be asking one of the children from the school to switch on the lights.
Nick Barrett, Chairperson of the Argus Insurance Charity Committee said “It is important for us as a local insurer to be able to raise funds for local charities, particularly at this time of year. We’re really grateful to our corporate sponsors who have been so generous again this year, following the success of our first Christmas Tree Lighting event last year.”
The whole of the funds raised will go to the following three charities:
- RICC (Research Into Childhood Cancer)
- GBC Open Day
