Carnival UK employees will take part in a variety of fundraising initiatives including Monty’s ‘Her Majesty the Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations’ event on June 3, 2022 where volunteers will be involved in running games, stalls and events.

Over the next 12 months we look forward to working together with Monty’s to help raise awareness and funds for this amazing charity.”
