AFFA Afro-Festival of Food & Art

AFFA Festival is an annual celebration of African culture as expressed through art, music, food and community. It connects diverse people and families from across the region with artists, performers, food vendors, business owners and media.

It aims to become Hampshire’s main destination for teaching, sharing and celebrating the distinctive cultural traditions of Africans in Southampton and from around the world.

We’ve been selected as chosen charity at AFFA Festival

We are very excited that we have been selected as one of three charities to be promoted at the Afro Festival of Food and Art (AFFA Festival) taking place on August 27 and 28 at Highbridge Farm in Otterbourne.

As part of being invited to the festival, we will be given two stands, one to promote Communicare and talk to attendees all about the work we do to help reduce loneliness and isolation in Southampton, and the other to sell delicious treats from the commercial arm of our charity, CommuniBakes, which is a community bakery. All the profits from any sweet treats sold will go towards the work that we do in neighbourhoods across the city.

Volunteer at the festival

Various volunteer roles are available with both Communicare in Southampton and CommuniBakes at the AFFA Festival (min 3hr slot).

Perks of Volunteering:

  • Free Festival Ticket
  • Communicare T-shirt
  • Be part of an Inspiring Team


Help to Recruit Volunteers

We are looking for PASSIONATE volunteers that LOVE Communicare to help INSPIRE festival attendees to consider volunteering for Communicare.


We are looking for ENTHUSIASTIC and FRIENDLY volunteers to help encourage festival attendees to DONATE to Communicare and share other fundraising opportunities.

CommuniBakes Stand
