Street Collection– During the procession local charities and groups will make a bucket collection for donations in appreciation of the spectacle you are enjoying, please give generously. Proceeds of the collection will be distributed to local charities, clubs and groups. The carnival costs in excess of £10,000 to stage each year, £1 from each spectator would give us a record collection in 2016.
Souvenir Programs & Thunder Sticks – these will be on sale in various shops and the Tourist Information Office. They will also be sold during the procession. The program gives you information of the procession entries and the Thunder Sticks are a great way of showing that you have made a donation towards the carnival and join in the fun
