Remember a loved one this Christmas.

THE ECHO today invites people to remember loved ones in an extra special way this Christmas.

Readers can add a light to a special tree to pay a Christmas tribute to people who live far away or loved ones who have died.

Others can light up the tree with their best wishes for a baby's first Christmas or a special note for a husband or wife.

The tree is on display in the atrium of the Liverpool ECHO building on Old Hall Street until the New Year.

For a minimum donation of pounds 10 your dedication can join the hundreds of others.

The full list of names will appear in the Christmas Eve edition of the ECHO.

Sunrise Fund organiser Penny Growcoot said: "We know from previous years how popular this seasonal event is."

The cash raised will go to the ECHO's Sunrise Fund, which helps good causes across Merseyside.

Some of the organisations which have benefited this year include Knowsley Carers Centre, The Liverpool Voluntary Society for the Blind, Merseyside counselling service Compass and Tuebrook-based North End Writers.

The Christmas tree has been generously donated by Royal and Sun Alliance.

To add a name to the tree, just fill in this coupon and send it to the address shown.

To get involved with fundraising, phone Penny Growcoot on 0151-285 8452 or e-mail penny. growcoot@liverpool.com

To make a donation send a cheque made payable to the Liverpool ECHO Sunrise Fund, PO Box 48, Old Hall Street, Liverpool, L69 3EB.
