Chestnut Community Events is a registered charity (No. 1141037) set-up to assist children, young people, and adults in developing skills and attributes to build confidence in themselves and understanding of the world around them.
Members of Chestnut believe that every child, young person, and adult 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 provide activities for children and young people within Cumbria, particularly within the South Lakes area, in nursery, primary and secondary schools, clubs, and organisations. We can plan workshops and facilitate events so that staff and leaders can participate with the group, assisting them to build on friendship and team work. We also support a young adults initiative within our community roots project, that integrates young people who are not in education, employment or training. We support mentoring work for young people and adults to experience the working environment, assisting them to be more independent.
As a charity we are eager for volunteers to help assist us in any way they can. We are looking for trustees, ambassadors, gardeners/horticultural volunteers. We are also seeking volunteers to assist with administration, fundraising, marketing and web development. If you think you may have the right skills then please get in contact with us to find out more!
