If you’ve walked past Trinity this week you’ll have noticed that our brand new Christmas tree has appeared outside the building. You’ll also have noticed that our tree is a bit different this year!

We know that for many people, visiting the Trinity Christmas tree, either for Light up a Life or at another point over the festive season, is an annual tradition. We’re proud that so many people love our tree, which can be seen all the way across the Common and from the Old Town. That’s why it was so important to us to make sure we had a tree in 2020 – to spread a little joy, say thank you and bring a little light in at the end of a difficult year for us all.

So while everyone at Trinity is still working hard to secure our finances as we enter our 130th year and ensure we can be there into the future for all those who need us, this year’s tree is our way of celebrating you, the community around us, and of saying a big thank you for your support.

Importantly the tree is also more economical and more environmentally-minded than ever, making us all that little bit happier this festive season.

We know so many people are enjoying taking photos of the light show on our tree and we would love to see your photos. Tag #TrinityTree or @royaltrinityhospice (IG) or @trinityhospice (Twitter) to make sure we see them!
