Weʼve raised £130 to provide Christmas lights for Berkswell Village
- Funded on Friday, 30th November 2018
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 are one of the few local villages that does not have festive lights at Christmas. Berkswell is a fantastic village. I believe that our residents and visitors deserve a truly wonderful display of Christmas lights to be enjoyed year after year. I have investigated the cost of purchasing and installing lights with the local council and they have indicated that this will cost in the region of £1000 per street light. The long term aim is to have 10 street lights. However my objective is to raise money to fund 3-5 lights for Christmas 2019 and the remainder by 2020.
To raise funds I am cycling from John O'Groats to Lands End starting on 16th September 2018 and finishing 14 days later, covering circa 70 miles a day. For company my friend Stuart will be joining me cycling in a converted bath raising money for Macmillan.
