pounds 3,000 present from ECHO tree.

Byline: By MARY MURTAGH

THE Sunrise Fund's Light Up Our Christmas Tree appeal raised almost pounds 3,000.

This year hundreds of readers decided to celebrate Christmas by lighting up our tree for a loved one.

New parents dedicated a light to their baby while others remembered loved ones who have passed away or live abroad.

The tree, generously donated by Royal and Sun Alliance, is on display in the atrium of the Liverpool ECHO building in Old Hall Street until the New Year.

Today we publish the dedications, which raised pounds 2,885.

Sunrise Fund organiser Penny Growcoot said: "This is a fantastic amount of money to raise, so a big thank you to everyone who took part."

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

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

The dedications are:
