Volunteers hope to raise at least £5,000 for charity from this year’s Chesterfield Carnival.

The annual event will take place on Saturday and Sunday, July 18 and 19, with funds raised donated to Ashgate Hospice.

This year’s carnival has a superheroes theme and a launch event was recently held at the hospice.

About £2,500 was raised from the last Chesterfield Carnival and it is hoped the amount can be doubled this time around.

The carnival will take place at Stand Park Road, Chesterfield.

All money raised will go towards the hospice’s Urgent Bed Appeal.

The appeal is aiming to raise £1 million over the next two years for Ashgate Hospice to make improvements to the in-patient unit.
