Over 145 projects funded by 4,500 backers. £1.4M + raised and counting!
Worthing Rotary raises money for many local causes, i.e. homelessness, care and disability groups, youth support and more. The Carnival is one of our main fund-raising events.This appeal is to fund the circus tent and family workshops, which form a key part of the carnival - the circus tent and workshops are an interactive extravaganza at the heart of the bank holiday festivities for all to enjoy. Our breath-taking Carnival is a two-day event with charity stalls and refreshments galore, all setting-up on August Bank Holiday Sunday in Steyne Gardens. On Monday thirty or so floats parade along the seafront, marching bands, dancers and music, eye-catching local groups showing us the skills that they practice every week. (The circus tent and workshops are part of the wider festival, but could also operate as a standalone element).
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This will take place at our fabulously attended August Bank Holiday Rotary Carnival which includes a glittering parade, dog show, food stalls and bar, childrens activities and live music. These are financially challenging times for everyone and our attempts to gain the backing and the support needed becomes harder and harder. We never forget to thank all of our generous local sponsors but we desperately need more funding in order to maintain the levels the town has come to expect... since the 1920's. Small pledges will make a big difference !
Steps to get it done:
In 2022 Worthing Carnival and the Rotary Clubs of Worthing will be celebrating it's 100th Birthday. By supporting the event this year you will be supporting the organisation to reach this historic landmark. The Carnival has been part of Worthing's calendar since 1922, an important part of Worthing's heritage.
