Clevedon Lions Club has illuminated its charity tree and strung the first of many charitable stars.

The Tree Of Light tradition will aim to raise money to support a diabetes charity and Hearing Dogs For The Deaf.

The tree stands inside the Baptist church in Queens Square and was switched on by Judith West, chair of Clevedon Town Council.

A Lions spokesman said: “The aim of the tree is to remember a loved one at this festive time of year.

“Call into the church foyer, write a message and then place your star on the tree.”

Club members will be at the tree from 10am to noon every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from this week to December 23 to accept messages.

Last December, almost 200 stars adorned the tree, raising more than £1,000 for the two charities.
