Daily Draws - lots of prizes

Friendship Festival relies on more than 200 volunteers annually to assist in the running of its international festival. With such dedication, it is difficult to call them merely volunteers. People volunteer at the festival for a variety of reasons: to meet new friends, learn new skills or just to have fun!

Fundraising help needed throughout the year -Call today
