Tower of Light presentation

The idea of the Tower of Light at Measham is to give anyone and everyone, no matter what nationality or religion, the chance to remember a loved one at Christmas, by sponsoring a light bulb on the church tower of St Laurence Church, Measham.    The bulbs were sponsored by a donation, and that bulb, when lit, represents the donor’s thoughts. The lights on the church tower were illuminated as a separate part of the switching on ceremony for the impressive Measham village Christmas lights, and were visible from all over the village.

       Those who sponsored the lights were sent acknowledgement cards, which had a relevant verse printed on them. The money raised from the donations from the Tower of Light on this last occasion totalled £1,721.00, specifically in order to help  purchase equipment for the Measham Welfare Junior Football Club. 

The MWJFC is a community football club providing a safe environment for young people to actively participate in football.  It allows youngsters to get involved in local league competitions, on a weekly basis. This develops social skills, physical attributes, psychological awareness, and technical ability in young players from 8-16 years of age. The club consists of various teams ranging from under 8s to under 16s, both boys and girls, and presently has about 80 members.

                         

It is thanks to the generosity of our donors in Measham and the surrounding villages which has made the presentation of this cheque for £1,721.00 possible.
