Carnival Spokesman Ion Castro said "Thank you to everyone for turning up even if you weren't receiving a donation, it made the evening a great success enjoyed by all. We're sorry that the amount we were able to donate was down a little on previous years - that was because of the unseasonably unkind weather on Carnival Day last year but we are looking forward to a bigger and better Carnival this year."
