Ironbridge would like to welcome santa in a bright new way. there will be fireworks to say thank you to santa.

Ironbridge Delivery stage

pledged of £12,364

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

the lights in Ironbridge need refreshing. the town is visited by 1000s but the population is small. so funding new lights is a challenge. help us light up the iconic town set around the first cast iron bridge ever built. Santa will be joined by a brass band and a choir and the school children singing. Santa wants to make sure he gets it right on Christmas eve so wants to see as many children as possible.

What we'll deliver:

  • Buy and install brand new lights
  • Have a wonderful fireworks display
  • Invite Santa to join us
  • Put up Christmas trees in the town

Why it's a great idea:

it is just great and a wonderful feel good factor for everyone who visits. everyone who comes to the switch on can see santa for free. lots of people come together to provide a lovely simple night for the kids to see santa and tell him what secrets they want to tell. come along and be entertained for free. the shops will be open so do some shopping if you want. stop for a drink in one of the pubs . just come and see.

Steps to get it done:

  • Engage community and wider audience
  • Sheer will power
  • Support of local business

Please support this small community make a big simple impact.
