Raising thousands of pounds each year for our chosen charities and good causes

In 2018 Swanage Carnival celebrated another successful year,  giving away a staggering £28,000 to 23 selected organisations.  The donations were awarded at our annual presentation night and we have been delighted to learn how these hard raised funds have been put to great use in our community.
