Weʼre raising £2,000 to take part in The Lord Mayor's Show, celebrating the volunteer work of our key workers and our incredible community.

19 days to go

Don't have time to donate right now?


November 12th will be an exciting day in the history of Wells-next-the-Sea. The key workers in the town will be taken to the City of London. The town is home to the forthcoming Lord Mayor of London and we can therefore participate in the Lord Mayor's Show parade to showcase our amazing town and the community volunteer work. The key workers play such an important part in the town, volunteering to help make Wells well. We are so lucky to have them, this is our chance to say thank you.

We have had many generous donations so far, reflecting the incredible spirit of the community. To get us over the line and enable us to take all the key workers to the Lord Mayor's Show we need to raise additional funds. The whole day will be paid for by local donations, so all key workers will have a day out, no expense for them.

Over 200,000 people will be on the route watching the parade in person and over 2 million watching live on the BBC. This is such a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase our town and our key workers.

Our parade entry will be 70 people, mostly key workers from our town, along with local school children. The 70yr old Leyland Tiger, Char A-Banc, bus from the beach road will be the centrepiece in the parade, the bus will help to carry the key workers and to allow us to display the fantastic attractions that make up our entry.

The school children are helping to make banners, the banners will then be on wind breaks to showcase the iconic elements of our town, including our beach huts, our seagulls, the gantry over the Quay, our beach and pinewoods, our Staithe Street, buckets & spades, the lobster pot Christmas Tree, the brilliant carnival acts and a lady on stilts, in a shimmery dress, with beach huts on her arms, yes you read that right.

This is a real community effort and we appreciate your continued support to help make this possible!
