One of the reasons that Frome Carnival is so special is that we are a registered charity, supporting individuals, organisations and good causes in the local area.
Our fundraising events throughout the year allow us to put on the carnival – which can cost many thousands of pounds. Once we’ve paid for that, any extra money – and most importantly, that which is donated to us during the processions – can be passed to the charity.
Applications to taking part in the 2022 Carnival are now available to submit. Please follow the link below to download the forms.
EVENTS AND COMPETITIONS
A range of events are held throughout the year to bring joy to the community while raising essential funds for the initiatives we support across Frome. From competitions, to the annual Duck Race and Sponsored Walks, there is a lot to do and take part in for a good cause.
Not forgetting the biggest event of our calendar, our Annual Family Funday and Dog show.
This well loved and attended Carnival returns in 2022.
Established in 1929 this has long been the primary fundraiser towards the local clubs, care facilities and youth support that the Association contributes towards each year.
The Carnival holds a very special place in the heart of Frome, and we look forward to its return in the autumn.
We welcome you to contact us to discuss volunteering and participation in our events throughout the year. Our events cannot operate without the kindness and time given by volunteers to ensure our events take place and are the backbone of their success.
HOW WE WORK
Where does the money go?
Donations are given out to local individuals, organisations and good causes in the form of grants or the purchase of specific items.
In the last year, the charity has given away more money than ever before. We have, for example:
• Provided individuals with much needed household items, like white goods and carpets.
• Given £5000 to Fair Frome, allowing them to buy a van for their new furniture bank.
• Supported one of the Frome Primary Schools.
• Provided funding to Frome Refresh who donate toiletries and sanitary protection to vulnerable teenagers.
How can you help?
Firstly, please dig deep on carnival day. The more money that you donate, the more money there is for the charity.
We’d also love to hear from anyone who is interested in supporting us in some other way, through: volunteering, hosting a fundraising event, sponsorship or donating funds!
