Vol Fest - One Big Cheer For The Volunteer
Sat 1 July 2017, 13:00 – 17:00 BST
Celebrating all things volunteer, Vol Fest is a FREE big fun filled day out for all the family. Enjoy a day of activities, games, food and community driven entertainment in the warm summer sun and discover what volunteering means for our Cheshire East communities.
Every week, Volunteers in Cheshire East contribute over 65,000 hours of their time to support our community, this is the equivalent of over 1,700 full time jobs … Imagine for one moment what our community would be like if it weren’t for the generosity of this truly dedicated group of individuals.
Community and Voluntary Services (CVS) Cheshire East, will once again be holding our annual celebration of all things community and volunteering and giving ‘one big cheer for the volunteer’.
The festival themed event will take place on Saturday 1st July in Congleton Park, and this year it will be bigger than ever!
The festival is open to all and will celebrate Cheshire East's voluntary and community organisations, giving them an opportunity to show what they offer and how you can become involved. This will include:
- Community showcase – local acts and entertainment from community groups in Cheshire East.
- Find out more about volunteering (and maybe sign yourself up)
- Learn more about your Cheshire East community
- Funfair rides
- Food stalls
(More festivities to be confirmed)
If you or your group, or your organisation would like to get involved and help us put on this celebration of volunteering in our communities, or would just like to know more please don’t hesitate to contact us directly.
