Every year the Leigh Lights yuletide parade continues to grow, attracting over 400 participants including local dance and theatre schools, musicians, street entertainers, charity groups, emergency services and leisure groups raising money for approximately 14 different charities.
This year the parade raised a record breaking £3215.21 – an outstanding achievement! In addition, Stibbards and Sons sponsor the parade to award first and second place parade winners with £150 and £100 respectively to their chosen charity. We are pleased to announce Morgan Academy of Performing arts won first place, receiving £150 for Alzheimer’s Society and Saint Pierre School won £100 for Crisis.
Leigh-on-Sea Town Council would like to take the opportunity to thank all those that support our events. Not only is Leigh full of happy people they are also clearly extremely generous too!
