Over £19,000 raised for Burning the Clocks 2017

Same Sky, the community arts charity behind Burning the Clocks, today announces that over £19,000 was raised for the annual winter solstice parade - the largest amount raised in the event’s history.

John Varah, Same Sky artistic director, said: “As ever, Burning the Clocks was a massive success. We would like to thank everyone that took part in the parade and those that came down to watch. Particularly to our team of bucket collectors on the night and our event sponsors ARKA Original Funerals and The Chilli Pickle who have helped keep the event alive.

“We would also like to say a massive thanks to everyone that donated on the night and supported the crowdfunder. This community contribution has raised just over £19,000 and has helped ensure this much-loved Brighton event can remain in existence.”

The volunteer-led bucket collection on the night of Burning the Clocks raised £5,412.67 and the 
event’s crowdfunder exceeded its target and raised £5,698 from 115 individuals

Brighton’s business sponsors also provided more support than ever this year, contributing £8,053 to the cost of the event. ARKA Original Funerals donated £4,000 
by paying for 25 ‘In Memory’ lanterns. The lanterns were made by friends and families in group workshops and carried as part of the parade, to remember a loved one who had recently died
.

Local restaurant, The Chilli Pickle and their customers raised £4,053 from donations by diners throughout December plus a personal contribution from the business owners.


And to top that all off, and amazing 
£5,412.67 was raised by bucket collections on the nioght.
