Sandown Carnival events and participation in other town carnivals costs the association up to £40,000 each year. Only a very small percentage of this is realised through grants or formal donations - the majority is generated by our fundraising outlet "The Carnival Shop" situated on the High Street in Sandown.
Staffed entirely by a generous team of volunteers and stocked with donated clothing, household goods and bric-a-brac, our bright and welcoming store is always full of tempting goodies at low low prices.
The outlet is also a hub of information regarding Sandown Carnival events, so if you need to check anything or pick up a form, you know where we are!
We're always in need of dependable volunteers to help out - even if it's just one hour a week. We are a friendly and welcoming bunch. No matter what skills you have, we can make use of them!
Interested? - pop into the shop for a chat or drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be in touch.
The fundraising outlet is located on Sandown High Street right opposite Esplanade Road. There's usually plenty of street parking in the vicinity, or you can use the Station Avenue or St Johns Road car parks, or the Esplanade, all of which are just a short walk away. The main bus stops are just along the road.
