Colour Experience

 BRADFORD’S FESTIVAL OF VOLUNTEERING!

A big thank you everyone who had a stall at our Festival of Volunteering in Bradford City Park yesterday. We’ve had some great feedback which will be used to help us plan future events. Music and entertainment from BCB Radio, School of Rock and Media and the Pantasy Steel Band added to the  atmosphere. Fortunately the weather was fairly kind to us for most of the day and we avoided the worst of the rain.  If you came along to the event and didn’t manage to find the right role, don’t forget to come along to one of our twice weekly drop-in sessions because there is a lot more out there, including some exciting one off events coming up.
