We are a not for profit organisation run entirely by volunteers, we receive no external funding so we must work very hard to ensure we are able to raise sufficient revenues to hold our events which cost a considerable amount to put on.
We receive a large number of requests for charitable stalls at our events and after careful consideration we took the decision to limit the number of charities we are able to work with otherwise our Markets would have no stalls available for Food and Craft traders and we would be unable to raise sufficient revenue to hold our events.
At our local food and craft markets our charities are Overgate Hospice, Forget Me Not Childrens Hospice, Incredible Edible – Brighouse and Brighouse Lions.
At our 1940s Weekend our nominated charities are Troop Aid, Gurkha Welfare Trust and Royal British Legion.
If you are a charity in the Brighouse area then please consider contacting the Brighouse Charity Gala as this may be more suitable for your needs.
Thank you for your understanding
