The challenge: Be in the right place at the right time. Carnival 2014 wristbands will be on sale from designated places sometime, somewhere in Saffron Walden, from next week. They won’t be too hard to find. Locate one, and you will soon be sporting a stylish Carnival wristband for the sum of just £2 with, of course, all proceeds going back into the events and community.

The opportunity: Sometime, somewhere between now and the opening of Saffron Walden’s famous Eight Day Weekend, on July 4, volunteers will set out into the town to find people wearing their Carnival 2014 wristbands. If you are one of the lucky supporters spotted, then you will be among the winners of a free single ticket to the carnival event being given away at that time.

Carnival chairman Jason Thomson said: “This is a bit of fun but it is also very important in two ways. Challenge and Opportunity is the first fundraising from the public that we are doing for carnival 2014.

“Over the past decade we have put more than £150,000 into local charities and worthy causes, all the money the carnival has raised. We can do that only with the continued generous support of everyone in the community.

“This will get us off to a good start, I hope.

“Second, it is a great way to show everyone that carnival is coming, and that they are getting into the spirit!”
