Carnival Charities

Join the greatest comedy soap opera on earth and help us raise thousands for good causes at this wonderful carnival!


Every year we give the excess money made from Carnival events to local, and some national, charities and organisations. Individual amounts donated ranged from £200 to £2,500 and totalled £20,000.

These were awarded at our annual Gala Presentation Evening. Join us on the last Friday in October this year to support your charities as they receive their cheques, and enjoy real Carnival fun and hospitality!

Apart from our eternal gratitude to all of our sponsors, there are a few people who need a special mention for their hard work for Carnival, which often goes unnoticed: The Town Council and its staff, the Tourist Information Centre, Purbeck House Hotel, Stage Light & Sound Ltd., AJS Developments, Swanage Conservative Club, Swanage British Legion, Derek Smith, David Hollister, Eric Hudson and all the people that man the Carnival Caravan.

We must take this opportunity to sincerely thank Travis Perkins Builders’ Merchants and several other friends of Carnival for their support in providing lorries and drivers, all of whom offer their services free of charge.

Thanks also to Dave Pascall and David Sims of Active Publishing for producing yet another stunning Carnival programme that helps so much in promoting Carnival and raises substantial funds toward Carnival costs.

Lastly the local services, Police, Fire, White Horse Safety, Coastguard and Lifeboat crew, for all their assistance prior to and during the week.


Swanage Regatta & Carnival gives very careful consideration to requests or suggestions as to which organisations it supports. This year it has been decided that those listed will receive money from the proceeds of the 2016 Carnival.
