SNCF is 100% Volunteer Run

SNCF was formed in 2011 in response to the need for a local community festival to include everyone. We are a not for profit group, all organisers and volunteers are unpaid and we invest 100% back to the festival for the following year.

The Festival will raise funds for St Christopher’s, a hospice which aims to provide charitable and sensitive palliative care for those in need and for The Zaian Centre via Oasis Charitable Trust which is being set up in memory of Zaian Aimable-Lina who was stabbed to death in an unprovoked attack in Ashburton Park on 30 December 2021.
