Oxfam are looking for volunteer stewards to help out on the gates and stages at The Carling Weekend Reading and Leeds. As well as getting a free festival, stewards will be helping to raise around £85,000 for the charity.
Since 1993, hundreds of volunteers have helped Oxfam raise over £120,000 every year working as stewards at Glastonbury Festival.
[r-zone1]Each volunteer works 2 or 3 eight-hour shift over the 3-5 days of the event in return for free entry to the festival, a private crew camping area with clean showers and loos, plus free and subsidised meals and drinks served at the Oxfam crew marquee.
[l-zone3]Steve Jenner, the founder, editor and MD of Virtual Festivals says, “Stewarding for Oxfam has always been the best way of experiencing Glastonbury – I did it 6 times before starting VF, and it’s fantastic to hear that people will be able to enjoy the experience at The Carling Weekend. As well as the free ticket and nice camping area, it’s just nice to be able to put something back into the festival, whilst doing something worthwhile for the world by supporting Oxfam.”
