Weʼve raised £340 to donate to Open Door, the local homeless shelter, in the annual Christmas Lights Competition!
- St Albans - Alexandra, Bedford, Inkerman & Alma Road
- Funded on Wednesday, 2nd January 2019
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.
Welcome to the annual Christmas Lights Competition, now in its 5th year!
Every year the community comes together to raise money for a local charity by spreading Christmas cheer! Houses turn themselves into Christmas presents and penguins adorn rooftops - so if you would like to decorate your home and raise money for charity, your donation is very much appreciated.
The entry fee is £5 and every single penny goes to the local homeless shelter, PLUS you get a 10% discount voucher from Aylett nurseries (exclusions apply) to use in store in the run up to Christmas. Please remember to leave your road name and house number so we know who to give a voucher to!
Councillor Chris White and Aylett Nurseries will be judging w/c Sunday 16th December, where a winner will receive a bottle of bubbles and something also for the runners up!
The competition has been a huge success in the past with over 100 houses taking part. Our target this year is to get 150 houses taking part to raise £750 for the local homeless shelter.
We really hope you take part in this annual event where we can make the most of raising money for a local charity.
