Christmas festival needs your support

November 02 2018

A CROWDFUNDING page has been launched to pay for Staple Hill’s Christmas tree.

The tree forms a centrepiece for the area’s festive decorations in Fountain Square, between Iceland and the Original Factory Shop.

But the cost of providing it is £2,300 and Staple Hill’s Christmas Festival needs donations to help meet the cost.

South Gloucestershire Labour councillor Ian Boulton, who is chair of the Staple Hill Regeneration Partnership, has launched the campaign to pay for the tree on crowdfunding website Gofundme.com.

He said: "The Christmas Tree fundraiser will help to secure the focal point of our festive decorations and will be a wonderful backdrop for our Christmas on the Hill event on December 1st. 

"Any donations will be gratefully received."

The cost includes the supply, delivery, installation, decoration, maintenance, removal and disposal of a 30-foot Christmas tree to be used as a focal point of the celebrations.
