Help us light up Barrow Park this Christmas

HuddleHub is run by a small team of people, all from Barrow, who are trying to make a difference in the community by bringing everyone together, and we need your help.

With your support, 2 years ago we managed to bring Barrow Carnival back to the town after a 6 year absence. This was only possible by sponsorship from local businesses, stall holders, Taylors Funfairs and your very kind £1 entry fee.

This year we have introduced Christmas Carols in Barrow Park on 14th December, which is a free family event and will include Dalton Town Band, Santa, good old carol singing, Fireworks, and the park showhouse will be decorated and there will be hotdogs, mince pies and mulled wine along with other refreshments on sale, but that’s not all…

We are also inviting everyone to get creative on the evening and bring your decorated lit up umbrellas and the park will look really magical!

Also, as the park has no lights at all, we plan to ‘light up the park’ which has never been done before. Barrow Borough Council are kindly lighting up the bandstand and surrounding areas with sparkling fairy lights, which will look really magical. But, we need your help to light up the paths in the park, and we are asking for support from local people / businesses for a £50 sponsorship which will help purchase 5 meters of outdoor waterproof LED festoon lights and metal ground stakes, which in return we will display your name or company logo along the lights at this Christmas Carols event and post a little thank you on the Facebook event, and most of all this will enable us to 'light up the park' to benefit the community.

2 days ago we posted our appeal for light sponsorship on Facebook and we have very generously so far raised sponsorship from local businesses for 120 meters of lights, however as the park is huge, we need lots more. Below is a map of the park, the red line is 81 meters long, this is from the Park Avenue entrance to the bandstand, so this shows the huge challenge we are facing to ‘light up the park’.

A big thank you to our sponsors so far who are; Stollers Furniture World, A1 Taxis, Cheeky Monkey Childcare, Salthouse Post Office, Harry Barker Properties Ltd and Orsted and to all the other wonderful businesses that have supported us with banner advertising, and adverts in the Christmas Carols Booklet which we will be handing out on the night for free.

We plan on holding more community events in our beautiful park, making use of the lights throughout the year, and we hope to make the Christmas Carols event annual. We are aware lots of events go on outside of Barrow, so it’s time we bring everyone together in our home town whilst raising money for charity.

Although this event is free entry, we will be collecting donations on the night to help raise money for the Mayors charities which are; Women’s Community Matters, St Mary’s Hospice and Mind in Furness.

With any event there are huge costs involved, insurances, security, the list really does go on and on… and without your kind support it would be impossible.   

If you would like to sponsor 5 meters of lights for £50+vat, please send us a message on Facebook, email or call 01229 808097. 

Please help us bring the community together!
