We have changed the way the street collection is dispersed – this year if you enter the parade any money you collect can be given towards a 'non-profit making organisation or registered charity' of your choice.  All we ask is when you have counted how much you have raised you let us know so we can see how successful this way of doing things is.  


Please email Marie to let her know how much you collect and which charity has benefited from your donation.
