High Street Takeover for Volunteers Week 2018 – Thursday 7 June – EOI

June 2018 seems a long time off but we are advance planning to host some new town Centre activities during Volunteers Week, one of which is to enable approx 40 local charities, voluntary and community groups to have a stall in a High Street ‘VolFest’.

This will take a lot of co-ordination and lead in publicity so we are asking now for Expressions of Interest from any Chelmsford CVS Member who would like to join us and promote their cause and volunteer opportunities to members of the public throughout the day.

If would be interested in having a stall please complete and return the below EOI Form and return it to us asap.
