Disappointing Collection for 2011

10 10 2011

This years collection for Chard Carnival was £3091. This is approximately £550 down on last year. We were hoping for a good collection this year, so we are slightly disappointed – we even managed to raise more the year the carnival was abandoned!
The money raised is donated to local charities (with St Margaret’s Hospice this years main beneficiary). We fundraise throughout the year to cover our costs so that we can give more to charity, although this has been hard this year. I fear this year that, despite all the committees efforts, we won’t be able to give as much to charity as we would like.

Its not too late to donate money, however. If anyone wishes to donate, they can do so at Sues Flowers in Boden Street, or at Chard Garden Centre in Cuttisfords Door. Sues Flowers are donating £1 from every delivery this week to carnival funds.
