2017 Pershore Carnival Announcement

Each year Pershore Carnival raises money for charity through a street bucket collection which takes place during the procession. This year we felt that as Carnival is a day to celebrate Pershore and its people of all ages, the monies collected should benefit one local Pershore group.

We are delighted to announce that this year the recipient will be the Pershore Riverside Youth Centre – an absolutely fantastic asset to the town of Pershore and an invaluable resource to the youngsters and a great facility for local clubs to hire.

Alex Mellor, Riverside Centre Development Manager said “Absolutely fantastic news. The centre, until four years ago, had been fully funded by the local authority. That funding is now greatly reduced and is to cease in 2019, so the news that we are to receive this support from Pershore Carnival is wonderful.”

Cllr. Liz Tucker a trustee of the centre said that this was “Amazing news, it’s music to my ears”

The Riverside Youth Centre got straight into the swing of things by hosting the Carnival Royalty Event on Sunday 26th February, to select the Carnival Royalty - a massive success. Read all about the event and our shiny new 2017 Royalty here.
