The day has almost arrived … It’s the Chesterfield Carnival this weekend!
Here at Crush, we love to get involved with all things Chesterfield and when were approached to help bring the carnival back to Chesterfield for the first time in 25 years, we couldn’t say no!
When Maria Davison decided to help raise funds for Ashgate Hospice, she believed that bringing back the carnival to Chesterfield would not only be fantastic for the charity, but it would also allow the people of Chesterfield to show off their talents, generosity and warmth.
Ashgate Hospice provides a wonderful service to the community and aims to help families focus on living, providing personalised care and support where it’s needed. All of these services are provided free of charge, no matter what service is used. However, around £4 million each year needs to be raised to provide these services and we hope the carnival will help raise awareness and some much needed funds.
There have been so many people that have volunteered their time to help Maria bring her dream to fruition and Crush have been privileged to assist with the graphic design, marketing and organisation associated with the carnival.
The carnival opens with a street parade around Stand Road Recreation Ground at 11am, with the full ground opening at 12 noon.
