    Weʼve raised £2,346 to help fund new Christmas Lights for the community of Alsager

    Alsager
    Funded on Friday, 27th November 2020

    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 nonprofit.

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

    Story

    It's is nearly 15 years since Alsager Round Table ran our "buy a bulb" campaign & first purchased the Christmas Lights that adorn the town center shops each year & attract thousands of people to the annual switch on event in late November.

    The lights are now getting old & cost more & more to maintain each year. It is therefore time to replace them & we would like to ask you for your help in making that happen.

    Light displays for this kind of application are not cheap & we are ideally looking to raise a sum of £25,000 to fund a complete replacement of the feature lights in time for this year's display if we can. In the unlikely event that we raise more than this sum, we would close the fundraising & place any surplus money into our usual Community Charity account which we use to support local people & groups within Alsager & it's surrounding area.

    In addition to this crowdfunding initiative, we are also looking at hosting a one off event to help specifically with fundraising for this project in the summer - more details about that will be revealed soon!

      Thank you all for your support over the last few months guys! It's been a terrible year for us all and we were unable to do most of the fundraising activity that we had originally planned for this... but we are now allocating the funds we have raised as best as we can to try and refresh the lights that we have for this year Once again, thank you very, very much for your help

      Wow!! Really close to the first £1,000 now - thank you so much! You will notice collection buckets appearing around town over the weekend. If you have any spare change, please consider donating it to the fund - all those little donations add up!!

      We want you all to know that it doesn't matter how big or small the donation is - every donation made to the cause takes us a step close to our target and ultimately, whilst some people are fortunate enough to be able to donate more, it'd take a donation of just £2 from every resident of Alsager to hit this target! Thank you for your help!

      Sorry it's not much. The lights are beautiful and our daughter has made us drive back and forth a few times. Our first proper Christmas in Alsager.
