Weʼve raised £170 to Help To Light Up Tewkesbury Town This Christmas 2018
- Tewkesbury, UK
- Funded on Thursday, 10th 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 nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Tewkesbury Christmas Lights is solely financially supported by the kind people of Tewkesbury each year. The voluntary committee organise the Lights Switch on and use their own time to fundraise to keep this annual event going in Tewkesbury each year.
The annual expenditure costs around £8000 to ensure that the lights are fully tested, it costs a significant amount to put on the switch on event in November, this includes insurance, road closure fees, signage, hire of first aid cover. We are also continuously improving the infrastructure to ensure that the lights are to the latest quality standards and that all connections are safe
The Christmas Lights committe really appreciate all of the help given by local people and businesses who assist in any way they can to ensure that this popular event carries on for the future.
Many people think that they are funded by the councils but this is not the case, they are funded totally by voluntary contributions and fund raising events held during the year.
PLEASE NOTE: Donations have been coming in from all directions from local businesses and Tewkesbury folk, the money raised on here will go towards our £8000 target which is currently on track!
Please help by donating today!
Thank You from the Tewkesbury Christmas Lights Voluntary Team
