The winter lantern parade is coming - and your help in needed

It may be summer now, but the group behind Bedminster’s annual lantern parade is already preparing for winter.

Organisers say however, the three month project can only go ahead if sufficient funds are raised by the end of July.

This year they have set up a brand new Community Lanterns Fund and people can donate by PayPal - every £1 counts!

Volunteers from the group will also be visiting local businesses along the parade route for donations and sponsorship. Already Andrews estate agents, Barcan Kirby solicitors and Mark’s Bread have pledged their support as well as the Bedminster Business Improvement District.

BWL chair Malcolm Brammar said: “Our message is clear, BS3 it’s down to you. If you want another spectacular community event this winter please make it happen by making a donation into our online bucket before the end of July.”

Organisers are hoping to start the project in local schools and community centres this autumn with a parade date still to be finalised.
