The first tree was inaugurated by Chris Redfearn, then president of the club, in 2003 and funds raised from the sponsorship money are donated every year to charity.

To sponsor a light for the appeal, pick up and complete a coupon from Sainsbury’s in Brighouse and return with the money in an envelope to the supermarket.
