Handmade Parade organisers are urging people to dig deep to help make next year’s parade even more spectacular.
For every £10 donated to the Handmade Parade, the Government-backed Local Giving scheme will double it and add the tax on top. Organisers plan to spend donations on float bodies that can be used to make the colourful works of art for the parade again and again, year after year. The cost of a basic reusable float body is about £500 to £700. To donate to the parade, visit www.localgiving.com/charity/handmadeparade.
