#LightUpWednesfield – Sponsor our Christmas Lights


For the last few years Wednesfield’s Christmas lights have been dwindling as government cuts to Wolverhampton City Council’s budgets have taken hold.

The council’s first priority will always be to provide essential services, such as housing, education, health and suchlike. Therefore, budgets for things like Christmas  have been massively reduced.

We don’t want the lights to go out – but we can’t do it alone we need your sponsorship!

Working Together For Wednesfield

This year we know that with a little bit of help from the good people and businesses of Wednesfield, we can do the following:

  • Double the amount of lights along the High Street
  • Bring more lights to the trees around St Thomas’ Church
  • Work towards our long term goal – to bring a living tree back in to the heart of the village.

We need to raise £4,000 by mid September for this to happen – that’s less than 25p per household , surely we can manage that, can’t we?

Hands on Wednesfield are offering a host of sponsorship packages for individuals and local businesses big and small, so hopefully Wednesfield can get better Christmas Lights and you can get a little something out of it too.

On the successful funding of this project we will be produce a Christmas Brochure to hand out the event that you could be featured in, alongside other marketing opportunities in the Wednesfield Magazine and on the WV11.co.uk website and Facebook page.

If you are an individual looking to support us we have pledges for you too.

See our sponsorship packages for exactly what’s on offer on our crowdfunding page.

Here Come The Stats…

  • Annual attendance to the switch on event often reaches 1,000 people,with the online audience being much greater. We will produce 1,000 brochures to hand out at the event.
  • The Wednesfield Magazine is distirbuted door to door and is in prominent positions in shops, doctors waiting rooms, schools and commuity centres reaching 30,000 people locally.
  • WV11.co.uk’s website has over 2,500 unique visitors each month, clocking up 8,570 page views between them.
  • The WV11 Facebook page has over 8,000 likes and an average reach of 20,000 people per week, their combined Twitter and Instagram profiles have over 3,800 followers.

By taking one of our top level sponsorship packages this could be your audience too!

It’s a case of all or nothing – we need to raise £4,000 to make this happen – See what you can give on our crowdfunding page

About the Author

I have nearly always lived in Wednesfield, I moved away briefly but missed the sense of community and so swiftly moved back! I honestly believe Wednesfield has more to offer than the residents often give it credit for and wanted to do something to redress the balance of negativity around where we live. Working for a media company using the internet and social media as a marketing tool I had the skills and passion to help set up WV11.co.uk so did!
