And to local residents who have donated so far. We were able to light up a beautiful new tree in the Great Eastern Street Car Park. Thanks to everyone who supported our fundraising efforts!
Thanks to everyone who came along to our fundraiser on the 18th October and to our local businesses for their generous tombola prizes! We managed to raise about £350 in total.
Our festive lights would not be possible without support from the local community. We thank everybody for their donations and hard work this year in fundraising for our tree lights:
The Suzy Oakes Trust for £400 towards the lights and £100 for a commemorative sign at the Petersfield tree.
To our local Co-op store for £500 towards the lights.
To Paul Saunders and Robert Lummis – two indefatigable local residents who spent many weekends shaking their collection buckets on Mill Road bridge. They raised over £800 all together.
To all of the local businesses and people who donated tombola prizes which raise £133 at the Switch On event and £188 at the fundraiser event in October.
The Hive on Gwydir Street who put in £50 this year.
We were able to use a profit of £600 generated through Mill Road Feast events towards the festive lights.
With thanks to everybody who made our festive lights possible in 2013:
In addition to the funding we have received from the Council, the Co-operative and Avis, we are infinitely grateful to the Mill Road business community – often much smaller and independently owned – who have still contributed towards our costs. The following businesses receive our thanks:
