The 7th annual Festival of Christmas Trees in Bridlington has raised £3,400 for charity.

It is organised by the Rotary Club of Bridlington who say it has been 'another great success'.

St John’s Burlington Methodist Church provided once again the setting for a display of over 60 decorated and illuminated trees over the first two weekends in December.

The trees had been contributed by local schools, charities, churches, uniformed organisations and businesses.

Over the two weekends music was provided each Friday by 8 local school choirs and each Saturday by community choirs and music groups.

The opening Gala Concert on Friday 6th December featured “Weighton Waytes Choir” from Market Weighton and Hilderthorpe Primary School Choir.

The closing Celebration on Sunday 15th December featured music by the “Churches Together Choir “and Sewerby Methodist Church Choir.

Throughout the two weekends the church café 1884 served light refreshments and tombola was run by members of the Bridlington Yorkshire Cancer Research committee.

The 7th annual Festival raised £3,400 to be divided between the Bridlington branch of Yorkshire Cancer Research (60%) and local Rotary charities (40%).

Since the Festival of Christmas Trees began in Bridlington, organised by the local Rotary club, it has raised in excess of £20,000 which has gone towards such charities as Marie Curie, St Catherine’s Hospice and Yorkshire Cancer Research.
