Barclays Bank, Durham
The wonderful staff at the Barclays Durham branch will be volunteering to sell raffle tickets at our Gala dinner and also helping us out with donations that we receive during the festival. Everything raised from raffle tickets will be boosted by the bank, who support employee fundraising and match money raised pound-for-pound up to £750 as part of their Community Investment Programme. "We're thrilled to be supporting this event and look forward to seeing the breathtaking installations and projections illuminating the city!".
Sally is a founder and Director of Waterstons Ltd, a business and IT consultancy based in Durham. They supported Lumiere 2011 and we’re really pleased that they’ve sponsored us again this year: in particular they wanted to support our work in prisons. As Sally says: ‘I love the idea that this magical festival will be enhancing the lives not only of residents and visitors but also people who may be disadvantaged and forgotten.”

Karen Goldfinch, Made To Treasure
Made to Treasure, are an Event Management and Decor Services provider. They designed and created the table decor for the Gala Dinner, which they promise will be instantly recognisable and extremely unique! "Being in the creative industry, and having a young son, we strongly believe events should be accessible to everyone, and were keen to support Lumiere in any way we could. With so much going on, it’s hard to choose which bit to see first! I’m hoping these installations will inspire the next generation, to develop the creative talent we have in the North East."
