I can hardly believe that it is 3 years years ago that the PR, Events and Marketing company that I run, Marketing Profile, put together the Christmas Bauble campaign which raised £15,000 for Christmas Lights. It was wonderful to see local businesses pulling together. Surprisingly some people are still not aware that the village receives no Council funding for the lights and has to raise all monies themselves.
Each year funds have to now be generated to put those lights up. This year Hale Civic Society are running a campaign, ‘Stop the Grinch from stealing Christmas’ to raise funds and we are asking locals, friends and businesses to all support the campaign. Please can you help, every £ matters. Please follow the just giving link or add to the collection pot at Hale Post Office or Portland Wines. Undoubtedly 2020 has been a challenging year for us all and I’m sure that you agree lighting up the village this Christmas will bring a smile to many peoples faces, even if wearing a mask! Thank you and Best wishes for Christmas and here’s to a much better year in 2021 for us all.
