We are looking for a Freelance Event Coordinator to help us deliver an upcoming community event.

What is the brief?

We hold an annual Harvest Festival as our flagship community fundraising activity. We find that the idea of a harvest and sharing in times of plenty with others are principles that resonate with the local community. Local schools get involved and their harvest donations help to restock our Refugee and Migrant Foodbank. We encourage local councillors and the community to join us to celebrate Newham and local businesses to support the event.

This year, the event is expected to take place on 17 October. The contractor will need to be available on that date to support the event, all other days and hours of work are flexible.
