Guernsey residents and visitors past and present have wonderful memories of Town at Christmastime but the future is looking dark if we do not raise the necessary funds to support maintenance and improvement of the Christmas lights. Our aim is to raise those funds!
But how much do we need? Well, for basic management and upkeep of the lights a minimum of £35,000 per annum is required. However, to extend and enhance the festive lighting for present and future generations, around £45,000 per annum is necessary. This money will cover the magical festive light displays across Church Square, Market Square, Smith Street, Fountain Street, the Arcade, Mill Street, the High Street and The Pollet.
To support us and help ensure the future of Town’s Christmas lights, please donate using one of the methods below:

Earlier in the year, we received a £900 donation from NORTHERN TRUST and here's what they had to say:
“The Northern Trust Charitable Trust in Guernsey is pleased to support the St Peter Port Christmas Lights. Employees in our Guernsey office dressed down for the day to raise funds, which were matched by our Charitable Trust,” said Dave Sauvarin, country head Northern Trust, Guernsey. “At Northern Trust, we’re committed to supporting charities and organisations in the communities in which we work. The St Peter Port Christmas Lights is a key local charity helping enhance the festive environment for Guernsey residents and visitors to Guernsey.”
