A local Councillor is hoping to boost funds for Newport Carnival by setting up a crowd funding page on the internet.
In addition to the collection buckets found in various pubs and businesses around the town, Cllr Thomas Janke has setup a Just Giving page to raise additional funds for the Newport Shropshire Carnival which will be held this year on Saturday 8th June.
Cllr Janke said: “All donations made to the Carnival will go a long way to support the running of Newport’s main annual event. As with most things, the cost of holding this event has increased year on year. In order to keep this a free event and manage the demand of public expectation, Newport Carnival Committee are asking for generous donations from the kind Newport public. It’s quick, easy and only takes a minute or two to donate.”
Cllr Janke says he’s looking for a modest amount to help support the carnival, and is asking for £1000 overall. If you would like to donate you can visit the Just Giving page.
