Giving back to the our community

Giving back to the our community

Ever wonder where all that money spent on tickets, rides, food and everything else goes when you come to the Funfair? 

A good portion goes straight back to the community.

After paying for expenses, the 2018 Blackburn Funfair committee raised over $13,000 for local groups operating in Blackburn Hamlet. 

All Funfair committee roles receive honorariums which can be donated to the charity of their choice. Have a group you cherish that could use some financial support? Volunteering with the Funfair might be a great way to help.
