Christmas @ Measham this year is again promoting the Tower of Light.
The idea of this is to give anyone and everyone, no matter what Nationality or religion, the chance to remember a loved one at this special time, by sponsoring a light bulb on St Laurence Church tower at Measham.
The loved one may be deceased, someone who has moved away or emigrated, in hospital, in the Armed Forces, or someone who is working away from home. The bulb can be sponsored by a donation (suggested £5), and that bulb, when lit, represents that person's thoughts. There will be a display of the lights on the church tower, which will be visible from all around the village. More »
Names of the sponsors and their loved ones to be remembered would be placed in the Church porch. (Please put a note on the application form if you do not wish to have a name displayed). The lights will be switched on as a separate part of the Christmas @ Measham ceremony which is taking place on Thursday, 1st December, 2016 starting at 6.00pm.
Several years ago, money raised by the Tower of Light was used towards purchasing a defibrillator for Measham's First Responders, and sufficient was left over to be able to buy a training kit, which has allowed the First Responders to show how to use a defibrillator at schools and other demonstrations.
It will never be known when a defibrillator will be close enough at hand in order to be used to save a life, and this life may be someone of any age, as tragic events on sports fields and school premises have shown in the past.
The monies raised by the Tower of Light this year is a Community Project aimed at raising sufficient money to purchase a defibrillator in an accessible box located on High Street, Measham. This will allow anyone who has an immediate use of this easily usable, and potentially life-saving equipment, to have access to it. It will also be available to First Responders, to allow them use, if it is easier to collect it from the box than to go to collect their own equipment.
The First Responders organisation have also indicated that it will arrange demonstration courses to show how easy the defibrillator is to work
Further sponsorship forms will be available from the Parish Office, which is located in the Measham Leisure Centre, off High Street, Measham. DE12 7HR or can be sent to you. Contact Dawn or Anthea on 01530 589583 or email email@example.com.
Please make donation cheques out to West Leicestershire CFR Group, and return, with completed application forms to the Parish Office.
