Dear Superheroes

June 2018


...for that is what you are

We are a week into our epic crowdfunding journey, and the #bemmylanterns committee are staggered by the generosity of our community.

I won’t pretend that we’re there yet and it’s all plain sailing, but when we decided to try using Fundsurfer, it was our last-ditch attempt to raise the money after months of hard work trying to secure the funds through other means.

We were feeling very discouraged and genuinely didn’t know if we could pull it off again.

All of us on the committee love the Parade and would move heaven and earth to put on the project that has been embraced by the people of South Bristol for what is getting towards a decade.

Your contribution has helped in two ways. It has helped get to first quarter of that £3,800 we desperately need, and it has reminded us why we do this every year, that the Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade is loved and something worth fighting for.

That aside, we still have ¾ of our journey to go so please, please please donate, share and bother anyone and everyone you know to help us get to our target.

If we don’t make £3,800 all will have been for naught.
