Ever wonder where all that money spent on tickets, rides, food and everything else goes when you come to the Funfair?
A good portion of that revenue 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.
