Despite present challenges, Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust is determined that this year's village Christmas lights should still shine out and as many light installations as possible should be put up around the village to brighten our Christmas. Thank you to Tom Sumner and the team of carefully distanced volunteers.
As there won’t be a switching-on ceremony or any Christmas markets, the Trust is working on two new elements:
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 the opportunities to fundraise for the lights is somewhat limited this year and as you may know we do not get any funding from Bradford Council. The lights are paid for in the main by public donation. So during the weeks leading up to Christmas the Trust will be using a contactless payment method for people to donate on Saturday mornings outside Burley Taps and Wharfedale Deli and it will also be available in the Wharfedale Deli during their opening times. The Trust’s bank account details are: Yorkshire Bank, Sort Code 05-05-30, account number 35007477, and account name Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust. Please reference your payment as Burley Lights. If you want to gift aid your donation, please email email@example.com and we will email a form for you to complete.
