An Edinburgh hotel has launched a Christmas Tree Light Appeal in order to raise £10,000 for three city charities.
Black Ivy in Bruntsfield is encouraging people to sponsor a personalised Christmas light on a 40ft tree at the hotel for £100, which will be unveiled at an exclusive celebratory switch-on event with fireworks, mulled wine and nibbles tomorrow at 8pm.
All sponsors will be invited to the event and their names will also be featured on a plaque paced in front of the tree, and receive an exclusive bottle of limited-edition Black Ivy Gin.
The challenge has been launched to help support local charities Children 1st, Make 2nds Count and the Eric Liddell Centre.
Black Ivy’s Lucy Lowe said: “This is our second Christmas here and we felt this year it would be nice to be able to give a little something back.
“That’s why we decided to try and raise £10,000 for local charities with the help of our suppliers, customers and friends of Black Ivy.
“In return and as a token of our appreciation we are looking forward to welcoming everyone who has helped us to reach our £10k target to our special ‘Switch On’ event where we’ll also be handing over the funds raised to these three fantastic charities.”
