  • Charity Concierge 2022: a huge thank you!

This summer, brilliant festival goers across Latitude Festival, Camp Bestival Dorset and the brand new Camp Bestival Shropshire have helped raise over £74,000 by hopping on a festival taxi, flagging a volunteer for help with tent pitching, or jumping bar queues with a concierge.

Your taxi rides, pitched tents and drinks tips mean that can take our work supporting mums and babies in Kenya to the next level. Thanks to you, we’re stepping up our work with parents, communities and local government across Kenya: arming more mums and communities with life-saving antenatal and postnatal information, connecting more at-risk mums and babies with further care and working with local health authorities to improve quality of care. That festival taxi ride you took on a hot and sweaty July day is helping save lives, so thank you.

We owe a huge debt of thanks to the incredible volunteers who gave their time, sweat and smiles to make our Charity Concierge service happen – we hope you agree that they were awesome! If you were inspired by our purple-clad volunteers, or want to join the team, volunteer and go to your favourite festival for free next year – find out what it’s like to volunteer and join our mailing list here.

And finally, we wanted to say a huge thank you to our awesome partners Festival Republic and the team at Camp Bestival. You’ve championed through the years, and helped Charity Concierge grow year on year, raising hundreds of thousands of pounds to support maternal and child health. We can’t wait to see what next year holds!
