Festivals featured have all offered up a pair of festival tickets for the Ultimate Festival Prize Draw offering 22 lucky entrants the chance to win a pair of tickets to one of these incredible festivals for a donation towards the cause.
The fundraiser runs from 27th January until 1st March when entrants will be picked at random and emailed directly. It is one pair of tickets to one randomly selected festival per winner. Enter & Show your support here
Over the past few months people from within the festival community have been pulling together in many ways to help as much as they can; setting up charitable projects, holding fundraising events, actively engaging their vast networks and individuals going to France to help on the ground by building shelters or volunteering; a significant difference has already been made but the hope is that collectively, so much more can be achieved:
The bulk of the funds raised will go towards Aid Box Convoy: Bristol – refugees in Grand Synthe project. Where the team have been supporting ‘Medicines 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.
