THE Mayor of Huntingdon will this Friday launch the town's Christmas lights 500 Club - a campaign to provide better seasonal lights for Huntingdon.
Councillor Jennifer Sarabia will be in the Market Square at 11am to unveil the campaign's fundraising barometer, which will be regularly updated.
Each year, it costs £10,000 to light up the town for Christmas - and this figure does not include any improvements.
The 500 Club, which will involve a monthly draw with cash prizes, will be used to help raise some of the extra investment needed.

Tickets will cost £2 each month with half the money being given out as prizes, and the rest going into the Christmas lights pot.
Flyers with details of how to join the 500 Club will be available in shops and public places, including the Card Gallery, in Huntingdon High Street, town council officers, the Commemoration Hall, Saxongate and from The Hunts Post offices.
