Our organisation was formed back in 1827 and every year since (excepting during war years) annual parades have taken place. They started as thank you‘s from the local shop keepers to the gentry for their support and now the parades are used to put on a show for the whole town and collect money which is then donated to various local groups and good causes throughout the Uckfield area.
Last year £4000 was shared between 35 local organisations who provide a variety of services to the community, including youth projects, animals, education and the more senior members of our community.
Sadly due to the Covid19 situation our annual celebration and collection won’t be taking place in its normal form this September. Instead we are going virtual and using video, social media and this CrowdFunder page to keep our 193 year old tradition alive and hopefully still raising some money to support the Uckfield community.
Please give generously and watch our Facebook page for how you can get involved, maybe dress up or decorate your house, and keep Uckfield oldest tradition alive.
