Call for charity recipients for Mayor's Carols by Candlelight

Published on 24 September 2021


Rockhampton Regional Council’s much loved Christmas event, the Mayor’s Carols by Candlelight, is calling on local charities to nominate to be this year’s fundraising recipient.

Rockhampton Region Mayor Tony Williams said Carols by Candlelight was an excellent opportunity for a local charity to reap the rewards from our generous community.

"Each year there’s always such a wonderful sense of giving as our dedicated Carols by Candlelight supporters dig deep and donate to our chosen charity,” Mayor Williams said.

“I know many are feeling the pinch of economic uncertainty, so it is more vital than ever to help those less fortunate. I would like to encourage local charities that meet the criteria to put forward an application,” he said.

To be considered, the recipient organisation must meet the following criteria:

  • Be based in Rockhampton or service the people of the Rockhampton Regional Council area
  • Be a registered, incorporated or a not-for-profit organisation
  • The money donated to the selected charity must be used for a specific activity or purchase, which must be detailed in the application.
  • Other conditions may apply. See the application form for details.


Application forms are available from Rockhampton Regional Council Customer Service Centre or here.

Applications must be received by Monday 18 October at 5pm. For more information contact Council on 4932 9000.

The Mayor’s Carols by Candlelight, to be held on 8 and 11 December 2021, is a Rockhampton Regional Council event supported by local businesses.
