Red Arrows back at Weymouth Carnival - but funds needed to pay for event
10:01am Tuesday 19th March 2013 in Latest
THE Red Arrows look set to return to Weymouth Carnival.
The world-famous RAF aerobatic team has published its display programme for 2013 and Weymouth Carnival on Wednesday, August 21 is listed.
The ‘Reds’ were unable to perform at the carnival last year because the date clashed with an overseas show.
Their return will be welcomed by the thousands of people who enjoy the carnival.
But carnival organisers will first have to ensure they have the £10,000 needed to pay for the display.
A new-look independent carnival committee has taken over running the event and has warned it could be a struggle to raise funds needed to pay for the extravaganza.
The committee has set itself a target of raising a certain amount of sponsorship to get things off the ground, but warned it would pull the plug if the support wasn’t there from local businesses.
If you are interested in any of the sponsorship packages, or just want to make a donation contact sponsorship coordinator Diane Moore by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
