Supporting the local community.
The main purpose of the fireworks event is to raise money for charities and good causes with a local impact. Every year the three organising Rotary clubs nominate a number of charities they wish to support.
Besides these charities there are also some other charities and local groups that benefit from the money raised as an appreciation for their work and help on the day of the event.
