Meet the Pinkies!

The Pinkies are the volunteers on the Committee behind Dawlish Celebrates Carnival.

Pinkies on a Mountain Bike 2022None of the pinkies are paid and putting on a carnival means planning once the last one ends. Many of them take annual leave to be volunteering to set up, put on and then take down the carnival set. It’s a big voluntary commitment. If you would like to know more about joinig the committee please get in touch!

The Pinkies though rely on an army of volunteers who help out during the week – no time commitment is too small to give! We’d love to hear from you if you can offer any time!
