HUNDREDS of people have paid tribute to their loved ones by sponsoring a festive light in their name.

The Times’ Tree of Light Appeal has once again given members of the public the chance to remember lost friends and relatives while at the same time raising money for Portishead’s Christmas lights.

As a result, more than £1,000 has been collected.

Portishead Christmas Lights committee chairman Barry Randall said: “The response has been very good.

“The money raised through the Tree of Light makes the difference between just about breaking even and actually having a small profit to invest in the following year’s lights and activities.

“We are very community minded in what we do and arrange other things as well as the lights for people to enjoy.”
