LIGHT UP BALLINASLOE FOR THE FESTIVE SEASON

Let’s Light up Ballinasloe by thinking of our friends and family for the festive season be they be at home or away or no longer with us.

The Ballinasloe Lights Christmas committee are asking the whole community to get behind us and help us financially in any way possible, either by personal donations or becoming a business sponsor to ensure we can light up Ballinasloe this Christmas.

Individuals can name a light for family or friends to show they are thinking of them this Christmas. Names will be recorded by either commenting on your donation or by emailing BACD directly or you may wish to remain anonymous.

The Towns Christmas lights are organised by a subcommittee under the umbrella of Ballinasloe Area Community Development (BACD Clg), a registered not for profit company in existence for the past 25 years. In 2020, a massive investment was made by the Ballinasloe Community for the purchase of the new installations. Each year there are reoccurring costs involved for the installation, repairs, storage, insurance, and electricity which has been covered by a combination of fundraising, business contributions, grant aid and donations.

This year we are asking the community to think of their loved ones and donate in their honour to ensure the viability of the lights.

If you would like to contribute, please click the LINK to gofundme page below and choose the amount you wish to contribute. 100% of all funds received will go directly towards the costs of the towns Christmas lights.
