A Huge Thank You to Leiston on Ice Sponsors!

The weekend is finally here for Leiston on Ice and our fabulous Christmas market stalls, and we’d like to take a quick moment to thank all of our wonderful sponsors for helping us make this happen.

Many volunteers and businesses have helped us pull together this amazing event, and it absolutely would not have been possible without all of their help.

But specifically, we’d like to mention our five major sponsors right now, as without their financial support we would have struggled to make this weekend a reality.

Special thanks go to the East of England Co-Op, Hopkins, EDF Energy, Leiston Town Council, and Suffolk Coastal District Council.

And thank you to all of Leiston and surrounding areas for supporting us and pre-booking ice skating slots. We hope you enjoy the weekend!
