Community Action - Christmas Tree Appeal 2018

Community Christmas Tree set to return again this year at Ormskirk Parish Church - Donate today to the Community Appeal


The much loved Christmas Tree and Crib outside Ormskirk’s Parish Church is set to return again this year after its successful reinstatement last Christmas (see photo below).

Preparations are advancing well. Once again, Halsall-based Massam Supplies Ltd are working at cost price and they will supply a lovely 26 foot Norwegian Spruce. Skelmersdale’s P&R Electrical will carry out the lighting of the tree and the Parish Church have made insurance arrangements. The Borough Council have stored the crib once again and they have agreed to fund the electricity costs for the lighting and allow use of their electrical supply.

We have a healthy surplus towards this year’s tree and so we will not be approaching hard-pressed retailers this year.However, there is still a financial shortfall to cover. Also we want to raise money for new tree lights to give a little extra magic this year.

Now all we need is your support. The fundraising target is £500. Please donate today using the button below.


Alternatively, you can send a cheque made payable to Our West Lancashire and marked Christmas Tree Appeal on the reverse to our office at 9 Greenacre, Westhead, Ormskirk, L40 6HR or donate to the collection tin in Scott's Butchers on Church Street.
