Chelmsford Metro Bank Joins Forces with Over 100 Charities at Vibrant Volfest

13th June 2024

The Chelmsford Metro Bank was a bustling hub of activity and community spirit as it proudly participated in this year’s Volfest which is organised to celebrate National Volunteers Week. The high street outside the Metro Bank store was transformed into a vibrant festival ground, with over 100 charities setting up stalls to promote their causes, recruit volunteers, and engage with the public.


From dawn to dusk, the air was filled with the hum of enthusiastic conversations and bright colours of the charity banners. Metro Bank played a crucial role in supporting the event, providing refreshing drinks to keep participants hydrated throughout the day and generously supplying pens to stallholders.


The event was a resounding success, with numerous volunteers signing up to support various causes and a palpable sense of camaraderie permeating the atmosphere.


“We are thrilled to be a part of Volfest,” said Chelmsford Metro Bank Store Manager, Sue O’Brien. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to bring the community together, support local charities, and showcase the incredible work they do. Our team enjoyed every moment, chatting with the stallholders and learning about their inspiring missions.”


Metro Bank’s Chelmsford store is located at 38 High Street, Chelmsford, Essex, CM1 1BE. The store is open Monday to Friday 9:30am to 5pm.
