Kontact is the community outreach sector of Karnival, which offers a variety of fundraising opportunities throughout the year. Karnival runs a weekly Kontact hospital trip to the children’s ward of the QMC here in Nottingham. The pinnacle of the year for Kontact is the ‘Kontact Games’, which takes place in the autumn term. We work with the Student Volunteer Centre at the university to ensure that every student has the opportunity to volunteer in the local community.

During their year, Karni reps will complete a phenomenal amount of volunteering hours. Student Volunteer Week this year (February 21st – March 3rd) was extremely successful and our reps made up just under 300 hours of volunteering!
