As we face more uncertainty within our community, we in Askamore would like to brighten up everyone’s Christmas – Especially the younger members of Askamore who have undoubtedly sacrificed so much this year. 

We intend to run a Christmas lights event & display in Askamore where we will light up the community centre and will have an outdoor Lights Display & 2 Christmas trees. We will be asking Santa Claus to arrive and switch on the lights in a festive convoy! 

As part of this initiative we are asking local people & businesses to donate to help bring our illuminations to life.

We would love if you could help us to brighten up Askamore & add some festive cheer to our community ☃️
