Harrogate Roundtable organizers originally decided to hold only fireworks at this year’s event but have now decided to do the rest this Saturday 5th November – bonfire, fireworks, live music, and food and drink stalls.

Harrogate Homeless Project is delighted to have been chosen as the lead charity for the event, but urgently needs more volunteers to make it as successful as possible and raise valuable funds for HHP this winter.

The charity says it needs volunteers to collect on Saturday before and after the fireworks between 4.45pm and 8.00pm.

“Feel free to invite your friends and family to volunteer and you can all experience the fantastic fireworks display and help make a real difference for the people we support,” an HHP spokesperson said. .
