Christmas Lights Donations
I know it seems like a lifetime since last year’s “Switch On”, but the fundraising for the Christmas Lights is an all year round activity. As ever, it seems that the goodwill and generosity of our local community can always be relied on despite these difficult times.
We would like to thank all our donors for their generosity and make special mention of some recent major contributions.(with apologies to any who may have been omitted).
Firstly, thanks to the staff and pupils of the Queen Elizabeth Humanities College, who donated £1000 from their Christmas Wassail – a significant contribution to this season’s fundraising target of £8000.
Secondly to the former pupils of the QE, who raised an excellent £100 at their recent “Reunion” – Thank you for your generosity.
The yellow collection boxes that are on the shop counters of many local businesses are a very important source of income If you have enjoyed the lights and you would like to see them continue, please put your loose change in these boxes – it does make a real difference.
If you would like to make a larger donation, or organise a fund raising event please contact Geoff McGladdery on 01885 490799 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
All sums raised go solely to running, maintaining and improving the Bromyard Christmas Lights. There are no deductions for administrative costs – all your money goes directly to the lights. As with everything to do with the lights, everyone gives their time for nothing
Apart from the welcome grant from the Bromyard and Winslow Town Council, the future of Bromyard Christmas Lights is dependent on donations and collections to ensure its future.
The “switch on” of the 2013 – 2014 edition of Bromyard Christmas Lights – the 48th, will take place on Saturday November 23rd at the usual time of 5:00 p.m. , so make a note in your diaries
