Age UK Essex will be attending VolFest taking place on Thursday 6 June on Chelmsford High Street.

As part of Volunteers Week we will be celebrating the amazing work and vital contribution our volunteers make to the organisation and the wider impact volunteers have on the not-for-profit sector. 

Also in attendance will be Ollie the Owl, our very own older people's mascot! Ollie will be championing volunteers and causing a stir at the event whilst also providing some expert wisdom.

We would love to see you and tell you about the volunteering opportunities we have at Age UK Essex from knitters for our Big Knit fundraising campaign to befriending volunteers. There are a wealth of roles you can undertake.

We'll also have information about the services we provide and literature on how we can help people in Essex to live well in later life.
