2018 Beneficiaries


Ever since the first carnival in 1960 which at the time was to raise funds to build a youth centre, the carnival has supported our local community. The carnival has continued to support our local community and we are pleased to announce the chosen beneficiaries for this year.

They are, Woodley First Responder Group, Me2 club, Woodley Food Bank and Just Around The Corner. Committee chairman Peter Jacobs said, "Making the final decision on each of the primary beneficiaries is always a challenge with so many deserving local good causes!   We are now taking nominations for next year’s carnival, if selected they would receive a proportion of the funds raised from the 2019 Carnival".

If you would like to nominate a local community group, societies, club or organisations to be a beneficiary of the 2019 carnival, then please email us with the following information:

Please email with the following information.

  • Name of group or organisation
  • State if you are a charity and if so your registered number
  • Contact details: Name, Position, Telephone Number

The Carnival Chairman will have the final vote on the charities selected.

In accordance with the Carnival’s Constitution; The committee reviews all donation requests submitted throughout the year, and make their final selections from a short list in early February in readiness for the carnival. All nominations for 2019 need to be received by Wednesday 31st January 2019.

Following the carnival each year the grand total is formally submitted to the Woodley Carnival Accountant. Once funds are confirmed, the official figure is submitted to the Carnival Committee to formally donate.

The pennies collected during our processions are kept by the procession entries themselves.
