Summer of Salvage

We need volunteers to come with us to music festivals around the UK and help salvage camping equipment such as sleeping bags, roll mats, blankets etc for onward distribution to refugees in Calais, Europe and beyond!  Come and join us for a fun day out, get fit (as quite strenuous work) and do some good for refugees and the environment by preventing quality camping gear from going into landfill!  

The festival dates are as follows:

  • Download Festival – 17 June
  • Glastonbury – 2 July
  • YNOT Festival – 29 July
  • Boomtown Festival – 12 & 13 August
  • Reading Festival – 26 & 27 August (Bank Holiday)
  • Wilkestock Festival – 2 September

We also need volunteers to wash sleeping bags and blankets once we have brought them back. 

If you’d like to help, please sign up below:
