Tree scheme aids charity

RESIDENTS are being invited to funeral homes in Eastwood and Kimberley to leave a message for loved ones on Christmas trees.

For every message left, 1 will be donated to PASIC, the Parents' Association for Seriously Ill Children, based at the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham.

The Eastwood Funeral Partnership has organised the fundraising drive. Taking part are the company's four offices in Eastwood, Kimberley, Heanor and Stapleford.

People can leave messages up until Christmas Eve.

The partnership chose PASIC because one of the director's sons raised money for the charity performing in a rock band.

The Eastwood Funeral Partnership dates back to 1867, when it began as a carriage-masters providing horse-drawn hearses to the undertakers of Eastwood and the surrounding area.

Anyone unable to visit the partnership's funeral homes to place a message on a tree can do so online here.
