Southport and Hesketh Round Table (SHRT) are expecting their annual charity bonfire and fireworks night to go off with a bang, as the family friendly event returns to Victoria Park on Saturday 7 November.
The fun-packed evening begins with the lighting of the bonfire at 6.30pm, followed by a spectacular firework display at 8pm. As well as the pyrotechnics, there’s plenty to keep the whole family occupied, from fairground rides to a hearty hog roast. Gates open at 5pm and close at 10pm.
Adult tickets are £7 and £3 for accompanied under-11s, while children under five years old go for free. Tickets are available through local affiliated schools, as well as at the main gate on the night. The proceeds of this year’s event will be donated to Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) to support their ongoing efforts to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD).
Every week in the UK at least 12 young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions. CRY supports young people diagnosed with potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions and offers bereavement support to families affected by YSCD. They also promote and develop heart screening programmes and fund medical research.
SHRT member, Matthew Rycraft, said: “The people of Southport have always been hugely supportive of our annual bonfire and fireworks event. We’re hoping that they’ll turn out in their droves again this year for an action-packed evening of fun, and help us to raise a large amount of money for an excellent cause in the process.
“The weather hasn’t been kind in previous years, and our attendances have suffered as a result. We really want to keep this event running for as long as possible, so we really do need Southport to get behind us this year. Tickets are great value for an evening of guaranteed excitement. So please come along and join the fun!” he added.
The SHRT fireworks event, which this year is kindly sponsored by Champion Accountants, has previously raised charitable funds for a range of deserving causes, such as Alder Hey Children’s Charity, Southport Samaritans and Help for Heroes to name but a few.
