Switching on of the Tree of Light in Los Gigantes

Posted in: Tenerife, The Harbour Club News- Dec 18, 2014 1 Comment

The switching on of the charity Tree of Light will take place in Los Gigantes this Saturday.

The event, organised every year by the Lion’s Club in conjuntion with the council’s Social Services and Culture Department, will organise the symbolic sale of each light on the tree in order to fundraise for the purchase of food for the neediest families in the council area. So, if you are in Los Gigantes or nearby this Saturday 20th December pop along to the Bouganville Square for this event which will start at 8pm.

The Lion’s Club intention is that anyone who wants can donate an amount of money for each symbolic light of the tree which will go to help the worst of families in the council area by purchasing quality fresh food. At the same time, during the event non-perishable food will be collected.

The event will be attended by the Mayor as well as the Social Services councillor, different council members and of course Lion Club members lead by their president Kent Ward. The Town Council and Lions Club would like to encourage everyone to take part in this good cause – and if you are in The Harbour Club – please do go along! The crisis has hit Spain and the Canary Islands very hard with 30% unemployment so your help is gratefully received.

After the switching on, there will be a Christmas concert with performances by local folklore groups and the municipal band.
