Whilst Carnival is of course about bringing together our community and having fun, we're also aiming (with your help!) to raise lots of money allowing us to gift this to local non-profit projects or charities!
Each year we support up to 4 nominated local charities, in 2016 we supported the Berkshire multiple sclerosis therapy centre, Me2 club, Camp Mohawk and Woodley pre-school, each benefited from the generosity of the community.
This year, our 57th carnival; we are pleased to announce our 2017 charities, Wokingham Link Visiting Scheme, Woodley First Responder Group, WADE day centre and Woodley Food Bank. Each of these serve our local community in different ways and we are delighted to be able to support them.
Nominations for a local non-profit project or charity which supports the Woodley community can be made. If selected they would receive a proportion of the funds raised from the 2018 Carnival.
We are keen for any charity we support to be involved with the organisation of the carnival, we will ask how you will be able to support us/help on Carnival Day. e.g. provide Stewards/volunteers, help on the gates or participate in the procession
