    Weʼve raised £793 to Create another fantastic Christmas in Ilfracombe!

    Funded on Tuesday, 5th December 2017

    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.


    In 2016 we achieved more than we ever could have hoped for! Our fantastic community got right behind us and we had the best Christmas celebration we have had in years!

    We raised a lot of money last year but we had to spend a lot (approximately £13,000) on electrical work and labour to ensure we had a safe, long-lasting foundation for our new Christmas lights.

    We have made a cracking start so far this year as we won the national Blachere Christmas Lights Competition which saw us win £10,000 worth of Christmas lights for the town! However, we do need to spend a bit more to put them up but we know they will look fantastic!

    We really want to hold our weekend event like last time and also deliver another great Lighting of the Lights event but currently we don't have enough in the kitty to host either. We have a few fundraising ideas up our sleeves but we, once again, are looking to our local residents and businesses to put a pound or two in the pot. Nicola Payne has done a fantastic job with her page on Gossip Around Ilfracombe so a huge thank you to her for her ongoing support.

    This year we are creating an Ilfracombe Christmas Guide where there are many sponsorship and advertising opportunities so please drop us an e-mail on and we can go through the options with you :)

    Many thanks and Merry Christmas, from the Combe Christmas Committee Xx

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
