I'm Crowdfunding to support Weybridge Business Group raise funds for improved lights in Weybridge this year. I set up this Crowdfunder after seening a post on Facebook by the Weybridge Business Group:
As you know it’s a struggle to make an impression without funding and although we try very hard to decorate our wonderful Town your kind donations and input are invaluable. This year we are asking all the major companies in Weybridge to help and we already have pledges from Waitrose and Morrisons which is fantastic however we do need to ‘club together’ to make this year the best yet to make your shopping experience a pleasure. The plan is more or less the same as last year with a large tree at the bottom of Baker Street (outside LeQuest) and one on Monument Green. Each tree costs a minimum of £650 + vat which we cannot recover and we would like to be able to add more lights to these trees plus the trees in the High Street and perhaps offer a reduced cost to each retailer for their shop Christmas trees.
We hope you will be able to help us raise the funds we need to help with this.
As a Weybridge mum of three (with one of my children actually being born on Christmas Day) Christmas is very important to me and I see it as not just a time for family to get together but also for the local community to get together. What better way to kick start the Christmas spirit than to get the community and local businesses together to raise funds for our town's Christmas lights and getting excited for the day they see their efforts in place with a magnificent tree that they helped to fund. I'm also arranging personalised baubles to place on the tree for everyone that donates £10 or more which can be used to promote a business (with a logo) or remember a loved one with a photo/name etc.
