In 2013 we were supported by the fabulous crowdfunding community to launch this exciting free street party in Worthing. 5 years on, 2 awards later and now with an audience attendance of over 30,000 people we are still rocking this party.
The Tide of Light Community Group work all year to raise the £19,000 required to fund this event from various sponsors and grants. Making this event come in at only 54p a head - Woo hoo. We think that's value for money.
We work in the local community making lanterns all autumn and on the day for the illuminated children's parade, making it a great spectacular. We host the biggest street party on the South Coast with a main stage with live music, street food, illuminated parklands and a huge firework display off the beach ALL FOR FREE.
We are so close to being there but need to raise the last £2,868 exactly! With only 4 weeks to go!
We need your help to make this party go off with a bang! We've covered all the necessaries, the dull.. but oh so crucial bits like insurances, permits, venue hire, marketing, printing, crafting materials, medical cover, infrastructure costs blah blah blah, but now need a last little hand with the final bits:
The performers, the illuminations, the musicians, the last few fireworks...... (just a little thing. eeek!)
Here's the kind of party we're talking about....
Please help us make this the best year ever by donating to the cause... in return there's an opportunity to press the button to start the fireworks (Cor what!) and some lovely branded goodies to boot. We're asking for donations from as little as £3 so if you can help in any way we would love you forever :)
The love doesn't stop there, on the night we fundraise for the Lions Charity to support local and international projects helping put thousands of pounds into their pot.
Altenatively if you would like to help us in person we are always looking for volunteers, and if you want to help the kids build their lanterns on the day please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
