Thanks for supporting carnival

Sir – The Witney Carnival 2012 took place on July 14 on the Leys. The event could not have been held without the sponsorship and support of countless local businesses and individuals.
The response from local businesses this year was absolutely outstanding, given the difficult economic climate.
After deductions for expenses, a total of £10,000 was raised by the event. All this money will be ploughed back into good causes in Witney and the surrounding area.
On behalf of the carnival committee, which is made up of representatives from the Rotary Club of Witney, Witney Lions Club, Witney Round Table and the local Air Training Squadron, can I take this opportunity to thank you all for your kindness and support.
We have ordered sunshine for next year!
Ron Spurs, Chair, Witney Carnival 2012, Oakdale Road, Witney
