VOLFEST is Back!

Over 50 feel good activities, with live music, food and fun!

Community is a work of heart

Be it a day, a month or a lifetime commitment, whatever time and energy you can freely give has the potential to change someone’s life. We are thrilled to announce that on Thursday 6 June, we will be celebrating #VolunteersWeek on Chelmsford High Street at VOLFEST 2019, the event organised by Chelmsford Centre Supporting Voluntary Action.

Over 50 local organisations will be coming together to showcase and promote their offer in a festival of all the good that can come of our community working together. Come and join us for a day of feel good activities, live music, food and fun!

You’ll be able to see first-hand some of the wonderful ways in which charities and public service support our city, and find out how you and your loved ones can access that help.

Check on your wellbeing by having your blood pressure, weight and BMI measured; get advice on how to stop smoking and support with quickly accessing local activities. You’ll also have the chance to learn about all the different opportunities for you to get involved as a volunteer; even if you only have half an hour to give.

Last year’s event was an incredible success, Lorraine Jarvis from the Centre said “There was the most amazing buzz in the High Street, people chatting to the stalls, to each other, and finding out how all the local organisations showcasing could benefit them. Volunteering really is life enhancing, it was an amazing day!”

So come down on the 6th and help us celebrate the fact that in Chelmsford every person, and Every Minute Matters.

BBC Essex will be promoting the event in the lead up and will be present throughout the day.
