Treefest launches at St. Mary Redcliffe church

Treefest kicks off at St. Mary Redcliffe Church this weekend.

The event runs from 10:00 to 17:00 between December 9th and December 14th.

People can go to the church and see some amazing different tree designs and enjoy  music.

This year the event is sponsored by Hollis Morgan and Smith & Williamson.

Trees in the competition

Treefest has been up and running for three consecutive years. It has become a huge event here in Bristol, with people travelling from all over the UK  to attend.

Last year, the festival raised around £5,000 and more than 4,000 people came.The tree that won last year’s competiton was designed by The Milestone Trust.

The idea behind the tree festival is to raise money for two major charities; Mothers to Mothers which is a charity that helps mothers who suffer from postnatal depression and distress.

The second charity is St. Mary Redcliffe Church, that focuses on older people’s needs.
