While Christmas may still be six months away, Mitchelstown Business Association (MBA) has a vision for the town this Christmas and with your help, that vision can be realised.

Members of the MBA hope to raise up to €70,000 to realise their dreams of lighting up Mitchelstown in a magical way.

Being cognisant of the fact that there are many people with connections to the town who are not currently living here and who may wish to be associated with the initiative, the association has set up an online donation system on www.mymitchelstown.com.

Donations of €25, €50, €75, €100 or a custom amount can be made on the website and it is a great way for people to be part of the vision for Mitchelstown at Christmas.

There is also a video of what the town could look like if the funds are raised.
