Christmas 2020

West Kirby Christmas Lights is a small group of resident and business volunteers who raise funds in order to make West Kirby shine with Christmas lights during the festive season. We are entirely a volunteer group and every single penny we raise goes directly to fund the lights.

Although the lights have been bought over several years, the main cost is putting them up and taking
them down each year. This must be done by a council approved and qualified electrician. We also
need to store and insure the lights each year.

This year we need to raise around £7000 to put last years lights back up. However, we would love to
extend them this year, as we did last year. We would love to light more trees around the town.

We are always looking for more people to help. Whether you can help with fundraising, a
Morrison’s bag pack or a street collection or if you have practical skills, please get in touch. Even
half an hour can make a real difference.
