The community is being asked for their help to make the event extra special.

Batley Business Association (BBA), the organiser of the event, is aiming to raise £1500 to provide a stage for this year's Christmas Lights Switch-on Event.

The event’s crowdfunding page reads: "In the past everything we needed to bring this wonderful event to life has been fully funded by a Councillors Ward Funding Grant , but we don't need to tell you that like many areas of England our local councils budgets are heavily deplete.

"We have managed to secure some funding to bring you all of the above, and we also have some wonderful local talent ready to entertain you as we have done in past events.

"We know many of you will hopefully be joining us on December 1, so if you can donate anything from missing that cheeky Mc treat or frothy coffee over the next few weeks, we promise we will do our best to bring you an event worthy for the people of Batley and our surrounding area.”
