As we all know, Greenwich Council stopped paying its share of the bill for Blackheath fireworks last year, so it could spend the money on a behind closed doors booze-up for the mayor instead.
But Lewisham is carrying on with the fireworks display this year, despite the financial hit, after finding local businesses to sponsor it. It’s also now unveiled a simple way for firework fans on both sides of the boundary, and beyond, to show their support for less than the price of a pint.
If you’re planning to visit Blackheath Fireworks this year, remember the event is still free to attend. However, we’d love it if you could show your support for this hugely popular event by making an online donation (of any amount) to help us continue to make the skies sparkle over Blackheath in future years.
Text: text Fireworks to 70007 – texts will be charged at £3 plus one standard text. Breast Cancer Care will receive 70p for each text sent.
Telephone: call 020 8314 3007 Monday to Thursday 9am-5pm; Friday 10am-5pm.
When Greenwich unveils a number where you can donate to the mayor’s private piss-up, we’ll let you know.
