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.

Story

To erect, maintain, power, repair & dismantle..... Cleckheaton's Christmas Lights cost £12,000 per annum of which we automatically receive an annual grant of £2256 from Kirklees Council. The balance is funded by local businesses, collection boxes in shops, grants when available & general fundraising.

Every year we are asked why the Memorial Park is not lit. Sadly, due to where the original blue lights were placed, highwinds have damaged the cabling. [Thankfully the thicker mains cabling is still in tact!] Working with Kirklees Council we have had the tree trunks stripped of their lower branches and it is our intention to add lights to each tree around the parks perimeter. This year we are looking to light 11 trees on Parkside.

If like us, you too are missing the lights... then we hope you will be able to make a small donation.

In the event that we beat our target, we will use the surplus to add additional & matching lights to additional trees around the park.

With your help we can make Cleckheaton 'SPARKLE' a bit more this year!
