donations A Helping Hand from the Straw Bear

These are some of the wide variety of organisations and good causes which have received donations from the Whittlesea Straw Bear Festival to help support their individual projects for the benefit of the community.

We have done this for many years now and we will ensure local people continue to benefit providing there are sufficient monies available after all the considerable costs of running the Festival have been met.

Not only does the Festival provide a most enjoyable weekend for a great many people, it also helps others through the funding that we are very pleased to be able to make available.
