Over the last 14 years Norland Scarecrow Festival has raised over £45,000, which has been distributed locally to various projects and charities including those above.

Whilst we are able to give funding to various groups, we are mindful to keep enough money in the bank to run the event the following year.    Also help is always required during the festival weekend.  Remember the festival is for the children and adults to enjoy, to bring the community together, and to raise funds for our village and charities. "Many hands make scarecrow work"!!
