We would like to thank all our supporters who put their hard-earned cash into our Collection Buckets during the Carnivals or into the ones situated in various locations during the run-up to the start of the Carnival Week, or bought our Carnival Programmes, Carnival Badges and Carnival Wristbands.
It costs more than £10,000 to put on the Carnivals each year and even after the generous Grant Assistance we receive from Ryde Town Council we are still a long way short of reaching our target. As a consequence, we rely on the kind donations of the general public and the money generated through our various fundraising events.
However, if everyone watching the Carnivals was to donate just £1 each, we would not need to worry about the funding for the following year’s Carnivals.
We now have some permanent Collection Tins located in McColl’s in Union Street (at the front till and also in the Post Office), and Tips & Toes in the High Street, so please continue to support us generously!
We would also like to thank the following businesses for helping us in various ways;
