Welcome! It's May 17, 2024.

Brightometer

Brightlingsea folk are a generous bunch, raising thousands of pounds for charity and good causes every year.

But we wondered – just how many thousands of pounds will be raised in 2024? That's where the Brightometer comes in. We're asking anyone who lives in the town and has raised money for charity – however large or small the amount – to send us details of their fundraising.
Using the form on this page, tell us what your good cause was, how much you raised and how you did it. We'll add the amount to the Brightometer to keep a running total of the town's generosity. Can we get to £100,000?
