Christmas in Boston – an independent committee formed entirely of volunteers to provide Christmas lights in town – has launched an online funding campaign.

It is offering numerous options for individuals and businesses to take part, ranging from fundraising through crowdfunding or donations.

Businesses and individuals can make a donation online at www.crowdfunder.co.uk/christmasinboston
The committee said: “We are pooling all our resources and making use of our individual contacts to make sure that Boston has Christmas lights to be proud of this Christmas. The team consists of people from the business sector, electricians, fundraisers, designers and community leaders who all have something integral to add to this mission.
“Our goal is to raise £10,000 minimum, which will be match-funded by BTAC (Boston Town Area Committee). This will be achieved by the support from the community. We are calling on businesses and individuals who want Christmas lights the whole town can be proud of to come forward and be a part of this. Find us on Facebook www.facebook.com/bostonchristmas/ introduce yourself and we’ll come and see you.
“We want to put on a lights display that families and children will love, gives them a real feel-good factor, put them in the Christmas spirit creating treasured memories for many years to come, but more than this we want this to be an overwhelmingly positive project because when Boston gets together it can really achieve great things. “
The Christmas in Boston committee consists of Dylan Taylor, Nathan Bryant, Darron Abbott, Julian Ross Thompson, Adrian Hewerdine, Andrew Lovelace and Mick Taylor.
