Help Save Barnstaple's Christmas

Our beautiful Christmas lights, on hire for 3 years, have now been returned and in order to fund new lights for our town we need to raise at least £20k.

Many people believe that the Christmas lights are funded by the council, however they are only able to provide £5k towards the total cost.  The rest is funded through generous donations and grants. 

The Christmas lights and the Christmas light switch-on event - one of the largest free, family friendly events in North Devon -  provide a wonderful festive atmosphere and bring the community together at this special time of year. 

Anyone who makes a pledge to this campaign will be recognised on the 'Christmas Roll of Honour' which will be displayed in a prominent location in the town centre. 

If you are a local business and interested in supporting this campaign, there are a range of sponsorship packages available. Please contact
