Let's Light up Haddenham!
In these challenging times we need to bring cheer to those around us. This December we are inviting Haddenham families, organisations and businesses to create a festive display to bring some much-needed joy to us all. A map will be created so that families can take a walk and follow the trail.
The Haddenham Festive Trail is a community collaboration raising funds jointly for Haddenham Community Junior School PTA and Haddenham Christian Aid Committee. We are grateful for the support of The Christmas Tree Festival and Haddenham Scarecrow Festival who are helping to run the trail.
Your display should include one of the following: lights, a wreath, stars or trees. It could be a simple string of lights, or as elaborate as you like. Please ensure your display is on view between 12th-31st December. If your display includes lights, it should be illuminated between 6-8pm. Please ensure you submit your entry before 1st December.
There will be an opportunity for everyone to choose their favourite display with an online vote and a prize for the most popular. We will also encourage the sharing of photos of displays on our social media channels for Haddenham residents who are not able to get around the trail.
A suggested donation of £5 is invited, however we know that 2020 has been a very difficult year for many families. We invite everyone to take part, whether or not they are in a position to make a donation. You don't need to tell us if you are not donating. We would ask any businesses who wish to participate to consider a larger contribution.
Donations can be made as follows:
* Via our fundraising page
* By bank transfer to HCJS PTA Sort Code: 30-90-38, Account No: 00330739, reference: Trail
* By cheque, made payable to 'Christian Aid' to 6 Long Furlong, Haddenham, HP17 8DQ
Festive trail maps will be available online, details to follow soon.
