The Recruitment Campaign for Glastonbury 2010…

PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO HIGH DEMAND FOR PLACES, WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING VOLUNTEERS FOR THE 2010 FESTIVAL . MANY THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST AND PLEASE BEAR US IN MIND FOR NEXT YEAR!

Ever wanted to go to the UK’s biggest festival and help Kiota raise money at the same time? If you volunteer to be on the festival’s recycling team for Kiota, now you can! Read on to find out more:

 
The festival will run over the last weekend of June and volunteers will need to be on site from Thursday 24th June until at least midday on Monday 28th June 2010. We expect to secure four early morning shifts from 6am-12 noon each day (Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning). 
 
Volunteers will need to pick up litter on a given site for up to six hours each morning. The festival organisers pay the charity the wage each volunteer would have earned, were they being paid. However, in order for the charity to benefit, the volunteers must COMPLETE EVERY SHIFT. In return, the volunteer will also have access to hot showers, two meal vouchers per day and be reimbursed the cost of their ticket. (The cheque will be sent to you in July or August).  
 
As it is the 40th year, tickets have already sold out and volunteer places are expected to go very quickly. As a result, positions for the 2010 Kiota litter picking team will go on a first come, first served basis and people who have already picked litter at Glastonbury before and successfully completed their shifts will be given priority.
