As ever since it all began, nobody is paid in any way, and every penny goes towards the lights.
Historically we have been well supported by the Town Council, local businesses, sponsors, public donations, and our own fundraising events such as the Melksham Fireworks. 2020 changed things and with no fundraising events at all we are reliant solely on a grant from Melksham Town Council, and donations from you!
Our funds pay for everything, from the electricity, new lighting, insurances, equipment hire and lots of other little things that all add up to, well, quite a lot!
So, as in 2020, we hope that peoples generosity may help us out, we have some pretty amazing plans for this year that extend from what we created in 2020 and with the ability to include more immersive elements such as buttons for kids to change scenes, start fake snow fall and more which was stalled in 2020, taking what we do to an entirely new level that we know will be incredibly popular ( well, aside from the 1 annual whinger! ) and aimed ultimately at making the year go out on a major high after the lows of 2020 into 21.
Whilst the 2020 display is still working part time to celebrate the NHS on the Town Hall, work is well underway to design new displays and we work all year to create what you eventually see.
Times are hard, we appreciate that now is a bad time to be asking anyone for money, but tiny amounts can add up and help us make this year the very best ever and as ever we really appreciate the incredible support from everyone that loves what we do each year.
