WHAT’S ON

Discover and explore all our upcoming fundraising events taking place across the Peak District and beyond!

Host a Village Aid talk for your community group or organisation. We’re always happy to share stories about our in-country programmes and projects and explain about the work we do in West Africa and why our approach is especially important. If you’re interested in having Village Aid to speak at your next meeting, please get in touch with Annie at annie.hinton@villageaid.org.

You can support Village Aid at this year’s Open Garden and Plant Sale. The event will be taking place on Sunday, 23rd June at 55 Kingfield Road in Sheffield from 1pm to 5pm with all proceeds going to Village Aid.

The Bakewell Market. We’ll be at Bakewell Market day throughout the summer, so make sure to stop in and say hello! You can find us at the market on June 24th, July 15th and August 19th.

Beginning the 29th June, you’ll be able to find our well dressing, featured in the Bakewell Well Dressing. This ancient custom is only found in Derbyshire, it is the art of decorating springs and wells with pictures made from natural materials. This year Bakewell has 6 well dressings, try to see them all when you’re visiting the Village Aid one.

We’ll be at the 200th anniversary of the Bakewell Show on Sunday, 30th June at the Agriculture Complex in Bakewell.

If you’re organising a fundraising event and would like us to include it in our handy ‘what’s on’ guide or would like to find out more about any of the events listed here, please contact Annie, our Regional Fundraising Co-ordinator, at annie.hinton@villageaid.org
