Charitable Donations

The Ringwood Carnival Society would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who took part in our processions and for making 2017 such a fantastic success!  We saw some amazing floats and entries- our judges found it a difficult task to select the winners! Those entries who did win were awarded a cash donation for their chosen charity, school, registered club or society.  Their donations were as follows:

What’s the donation process?

In accordance with the Carnival’s Constitution; once all the pennies from the Carnival procession penny pots along with other kind donations have been collected and counted, the grand total is formally submitted to the Ringwood Carnival Society’s Accountant.  Once the accounts have been verified, the official surplus figure of funds is submitted to the Ringwood Carnival Executive Committee.  This committee reviews all donation requests submitted throughout the year, and make their final selections from a short list towards the end of the calendar year in readiness to formally donate.

The pennies collected during our processions are for the Ringwood Carnival Society and not to be kept by the procession entries themselves.
