Chestnut Events is a registered charity (No. 1141037) set up to assist children and young people in developing skills and attributes to build confidence in themselves and understanding of the world around them.
Members of Chestnut believe that every child and young person is unique and will help them to develop their potential in an active community environment. We believe 'it's what's inside that counts' and it's our aim to help them learn in a fun and informal environment.
At present we mainly provide activities for children and young people within Cumbria particularly within the South Lakes Area, in nursery, primary and secondary schools, clubs, and uniformed groups. We can plan workshops and facilitate events so staff and leaders can participate alongside their members, assisting them to build on friendship and team work for their group class.
We also support a young adults initative within our community roots project, that integrates young people who are not in education, employment or training.
As a new charity we are eager for volunteers to help assist us in any way they can. We are looking for volunteer trustees and ambassadors. We are also looking for gardeners/horticultural volunteers and those able to assist with administration, fundraising and marketing/web development. If you think you may have the right skills then please do get in contact with us to find out more!
