The Long Buckby Feast committee run events over the Feast week, and the money that is raised is given to organisations within the village.
In 2017 we raised about £1350.00 across the various events. All the proceeds go towards clubs, associations, and good causes in the village.
Any Long Buckby association, charity, group or good cause that feels it could do something specific with some of the money raised by the Long Buckby Festivities Fundraising should apply in writing (with accounts) to the Feast Committee, c/o Buckby Newsagents.
The Trustees meet every four months to discuss applications after the closing dates of September 30th, January 31st and May 31st.
