The Warwick Rotary Club will be holding the service, which will feature carols, in Market Place on Sunday (December 8).

Warwick Community Band and Emscote Voices will be supporting the Mayor of Warwick Cllr Neale Murphy and President of Warwick Rotary Club David Brain at the event, which starts at 4pm.

The service is part of the club's annual 'Lights of Love' campaign.

Members of the Rotary Club are currently looking to fill their 'Lights of Love' tree, which has been donated by Barn Close Nurseries, with messages of love.

Cards will be placed on the tree for each person remembered and a list of these people will be published and regularly updated on the Rotary Club's website between now and Christmas.

The campaign is raising money for Myton Hospices and the Mayor's Charities.

Last year the club's campaign raised just short of £2,000 which was split between the two charities.
