The ladies group of Thirsk & District Business Association has launched a crowdfunding project to raise money for the town’s Christmas lights.
Supporters are being asked to pledge £5 to ‘buy a bulb’ and raise the £3,500 that is needed to extend Thirsk’s Christmas lights onto one of its main approaches - Finkle Street.
The project, hosted on Crowdfunder.co.uk, will generate a valuable contribution towards the £!5,000 needed to install, insure, run, remove and store Thirsk’s Christmas lights. The remaining amount is raised by the proceeds of the events organised by Thirsk Ladies Group and other donations.
Jill Miller from the group explains: “we hope that everyone in Thirsk and the surrounding area will support this wonderful cause. We want to make our town proud this year, and to make it the most festive yet.”
