WaterAid is coming to Bestival
‘We’re thrilled to be have WaterAid as part of the festival, it makes perfect sense to join up with the charity as getting the water and sanitation facilities right at a festival are absolutely paramount, and this is what WaterAid is all about. I really hope that people get behind WaterAid’s Big Dig campaign as it will make a huge difference to some of the world’s poorest people.’ Rob da Bank
WaterAid will have a stand in between the Grassy Hill and Wishing Tree field, where people will be able to have a cup of tea, relax, try on the famous tap and toilet costumes and get involved with WaterAid’s campaign.
‘Bestival is a fantastic event and we’re excited to be part of it,’ said WaterAid’s Anna McGuire, Senior Events Fundraising Officer, ‘we will be getting into the spirit of the festival whilst spreading the word of our vital work. People only need to donate a little bit of money to make a big difference as every donation we receive will be match-funded by the Department for International Development. It really is a great opportunity to make a huge difference to people’s lives. Roll on Bestival!’
WaterAid enables the world’s poorest people to gain access to safe water and sanitation. Together with improved hygiene, these basic human rights underpin health, education and livelihoods, forming the first essential step in overcoming poverty.
