    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    After the success of last years event, we would love to bring the community together again & spread some festive cheer.

    As you already know the local authority no longer fund the Christmas lights. However with a little team work and some festive spirit we can create our own winter wonder land.

    Christmas lights are very expensive as we are not only paying for the lights but them to be erected, inspected and supplied with electricity. Last year we raised just over £2000 and this paid for 12 rope lights.

    This year we would need to replace the old lights with 12 new LED lights which will cost 5,000. We would really love to purchase more if we can.

    The Newbridge Partnership board have kindly offered to match fund any money we raise specifically for the lights, which is fantastic. So this will greatly reduce the overall amount required to £2,500 to replace all the lights. The additional £500 will then go towards the grand Light Switch On event.

    Also the Memo have been a wonderful support and as well as providing us with a meeting space, they have offered us the entire building for free for the event.

    We really would love your support with this fabulous cause, Please come forward and join the Christmas Light Angels.

    Whether you can volunteer to fundraise, hand out leaflets, help on the night any small gesture would be welcomed.

    So lets dig deep, spread the sparkle & get giving!
