Festival Fundraiser: 23 of the UKs independent and grassroots festivals joined together for a combined fundraiser to raise awareness and funds for the ever worsening refugee crisis taking place on our doorstep. Very sadly, over the past few months very little has changed for the refugee situation, if anything it has become worse and now, the UK government has rejected the proposal to take in 3,000 vulnerable and desperate children.

The funds raised will go towards projects helping to keep refugees safe and warm with Grand Synthe project. Where the team have been supporting ‘Medecins Sans Frontieres’ (MSF) and other volunteers to help keep thousands of refugees alive through the winter months in one of the worst camps in the region due to restrictions placed on them by the authorities, many are struggling to meet even the most basic needs.

The fundraiser will run until 4th May when entrants will be picked at random and emailed directly. The prize is one pair of tickets to one randomly selected festival per winner.
