    Weʼve raised £2,705 to Light up West Kilbride this Christmas

    West Kilbride, United Kingdom
    Funded on Saturday, 10th December 2016

    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.


    We all want West Kilbride to look amazing this Christmas, but some of our lights are very old and need repaired or replaced. Ever year volunteers take on the mammoth task of making sure we have Christmas Lights during the festive season.

    These volunteers have to coordinate repairs and maintenance, coordinate with the council to arrange installation and apply for funding to cover all the costs.

    This year it will cost around £15,000 to renew West Kilbride Christmas Lights.

    We are applying for funding and holding fundraising events to help make it happen, but we need your help.

    Please donate and help us Light Up West Kilbride this Christmas.
