Fi­nal push for fire­works fund

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
