£380raised of £6,000 target by 21 supporters

    Weʼve raised £380 to Provide a Christmas Lights Display in Sheerness Town Centre to bring Happiness & Festive cheer to the Residents & Visitors to our Town

    Sheerness, United Kingdom
    Funded on Monday, 25th 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 charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    The Sheerness Town Team, which provides the festive lights around the Local Clock Tower and along the Broadway, must raise around £6,000 if the display is to go ahead this Christmas

    So they are launching a public appeal in the hope Sheerness will once again be lit up for Christmas.

    Last year the Town Team spent £6,000 of grant funding to pay for the lights and their installation but that source of funding is not available this time and so they are looking to other ways of raising the necessary funds.

    With Sheerness Town Centre feeling the pinch from out of town shopping centres the last thing it needs would be to lose the Christmas lights display which bring a lot of happiness and festive cheer to the High Street.

    Please consider helping us to keep the festive spirt alive this Christmas and donate whatever you can afford – Every Little Does Help. Thank You.

      The Lights are up ready for the grand switch on 2nd December. There will be a Christmas market, A Santa Saunter & the Fabulous Lantern Parade. Big thank you to all who have donated either here or in the many collection boxes around town. Thank you also to the many Local Business's who gave donations. You have all been just Fantastic (We even had help from a TeleTubbie!! ) If you still want to donate this page is still open for donations and we will start collecting for next years lights. Thanks you all once again from the Sheerness Town Team

The town team have placed collection boxes in many Shops & Pubs around the Island to help raise the funds we need. We also have the support of Local Community Radio Station 92.2 Sheppey FM. Please keep sharing the link with all your Friends and Family and we are sure the target will be achived. Thank You.

      Can't believe how much it costs to put up lights - know this is just the tip of the iceberg!
