Final push for fireworks fund
Mid Argyll Round Table is once again hosting this year’s Lochgilphead Bonfire Night event on the front green.
As well as beautiful fireworks lighting up the night, an evening of activities starts at 6pm on Saturday November 3.
The cost of the fireworks is proving difficult to cover, however, which has prompted Mid Argyll Round Table to start a crowdfunding campaign on JustGiving.com
The group’s JustGiving page says: ‘Mid Argyll Round Table has organised the bonfire and fireworks display in Lochgilphead for more than 40 years.
‘We receive no funding from the council and rely entirely on volunteers, sponsorship from local businesses and public donations to deliver this much-celebrated community event.’
The event costs £6,000 to put on and though Mid Argyll Round Table has raised some funds for this year’s event there is £2,000 to be raised to pay for the professional fireworks display.
The JustGiving page is only 12 per cent into its £2,000 target, so if anyone would like to donate go to JustGiving.com and search ‘Mid Argyll Round Table Bonfire and Fireworks 2018’ or visit justgiving.com/ crowdfunding/mid-argyllround-table-fireworks-2018
Last year’s firework display was a big hit.
