It costs around £15,000 every year to erect, maintain, insure, run and take down the Christmas lights. Without local people and businesses running events to raise money, the town of Thirsk would look pretty miserable at Christmas.
We recognise a lot of people think “the council” pay and run these things but that stopped a very long time ago, (although CIT do receive a £500 donation from Thirsk Town Council). As a Community, everybody comes together to raise funds every year and so far we have managed it but funds are dwindling so we need support more than ever if we are to keep the lights operational.
So we and our friends at Christmas In Thirsk have organised a big Christmas Summer Auction to keep the town looking and feeling “Christmasy”. Just place your bids for any lots that you fancy in the form below and may the highest bidders win!
