Time to meet some of our volunteers! Here is Jenny’s Peace in the Park story:

“I was involved in Peace in the Park in its very first year in 2003, and have helped in some way for most of the years it has happened. Be it face-painting, collecting money on the day, postering, raising money in advance through fundraisers, organising stalls or campaign speakers for the stages on the day.

I love the festival as it reminds me that there is a huge and loud beating heart of peaceful people in Sheffield. It has been amazing to meet and work with people who also believe a different world is possible, and who are up for throwing their energy, imaginations and a whole lot of time into the mix to produce an awesome day for soooo many people. I love festivals and dancing too.

For me, peace is people being kind to each other, in short. It’s standing up to the corporations and governments who are destroying innocent lives and profiting from war. It’s looking after the Earth and its resources, so the incredible natural wonders of the world can continue to exist peacefully, free from harm.

Peace is something so far from reality for so many people in the world, and in Sheffield we are incredibly lucky that in most of our daily lives, we are free from harm. We might have struggles, and some of us are definitely suffering in different ways, but if we hear a loud bang, we don’t fear a bomb – it’s probably a firework.
