A call is going out to all local organisations who need to raise funds for their own worthy causes. The Clacton Carnival Committee is looking for volunteers to help with various tasks, such as running sideshows and marshalling at the various carnival events, during Carnival Week 11th – 19th August.

The Committee is also looking for fit and willing helpers to assist at the new Carnival Showground at Alton Park Junior School before and during Carnival Week, setting up and taking down the paraphernalia of the various events.

If you are able to help, your organisation could be rewarded with a donation when the funds are distributed later in the year, once the Carnival is over.

A Volunteers Evening is being held at Sam’s Hall, Imperial House in Rosemary Road Clacton on Tuesday 17th July at 8pm. Do go along to find out more – we can help you to help your own organisations.

Alternatively, you can contact the Carnival Chairman, Paul Townend on 07967 685709 or e-mail at
