At the end of October, the Swanage Regatta and Carnival held their annual presentation night and donated over £23,000 to their chosen charities.
The evening was a fantastic night for the carnival committee, friends of carnival and the chosen organisations benefiting from the funds raised.

Carnival Chairperson Becky Mack said: “The presentation night is at the heart of what carnival is all about, raising money for worthy causes.

Many of the organisations were shocked by the amount they received and were proud and excited to be able to tell us how the money received will help them.
“The evening also gives us the opportunity to thank the individuals, organisations, businesses, emergency services and our town council who make the week possible. Thank you!”
“Having raised over a quarter of a million pounds since 2005, it is important we remember how important Swanage Carnival is to our local community and to keep working hard to ensure this amazing tradition continues for years to come.”

It costs over £120,000 to put Swanage Carnival week on, therefore enough money must be raised to cover these costs before considering what can be given away. Everyone h

Thank you to everyone who made this possible!

Hopefully, 2017 will be even bigger and better and we look forward to once again putting on a week of fun and entertainment for everyone.
