The chairman of Shaftesbury Carnival is planning a celebration of the town’s carnival spirit on Saturday, which would have been Carnival Day.
Rich Mullins has launched a fundraising appeal. It should mean that good causes which benefit from the event, including Shaftesbury’s Westminster Memorial Hospital, don’t miss out this year. You can find out how to donate here.
Some regional carnival clubs are frantically fundraising for 2021 because they have received no income this season, but Rich says his committee has set money aside for next year. It means Shaftesbury Carnival will go ahead next autumn if permitted.
