Decorate a tree as part of the Winter Wonderland and you could choose the charity to receive all donations
The Big Switch On will take place on Thursday 29 November on Kettering Market Place and this will kick start the build up to Christmas and the start of late night shopping.
During the switch on, Kettering Borough Council will be unveiling their magical winter wonderland grotto in the market place buildings, which will be open to the public over the Christmas period.
As part of the magical winter wonderland, Kettering Borough Council would like to invite local businesses and organisations to decorate and donate a tree to the Christmas tree festival.
The donated Christmas trees will be judged by the public and the winning organisation will receive a donation for their chosen charity.
If you would like to get involved or find out more please either email Steve Edwards at firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 01536 534170 for more information.
Valerie Hitchman, Head of Community Services said This is a fantastic opportunity for local businesses and organisation to get imaginative and creative to reflect both their unique personality and the spirit of Christmas. All they will need to do is purchase a tree, some decorations and have lots of creative imagination.
Portfolio Holder for Community and Culture Cllr Steve Bellamy says last year the grotto received amazing feedback and this year we would like to make it even bigger and better. By working with local businesses and organisations we can get everyone involved in the build up to Christmas
