The festival will run over the last weekend of June and volunteers will need to be on site from Thursday 23rd June until at least midday on Monday 27th June 2011. 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; it’s not work for the faint-hearted but with a few friends around it can even be fun! However, in order for Kiota to benefit and for you to have the cost of your ticket reimbursed, you must complete every shift. As usual, positions on the 2011 Kiota litter picking team will be 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. If you are interested, please email Pippa at firstname.lastname@example.org or Erica at email@example.com to apply or find out more.
On January 28th, Kiota is part of Together4Africa’s ‘pampering day’ at the beautiful Norcroft Conference Centre at Bradford University. It is T4A’s first big event for small charities and so far 22 charities have signed up to attend. The day will comprise training workshops, inspirational stories, networking and collaborative opportunities, best practice sharing as well as a few other treats. Along with other charities, Kiota has prepared a success/failure story for other charities to learn from and trustee Pippa Brown is hoping to present it on the day. Both Comic Relief and Dfid will be joining us on 28th January and small charities working in Africa are invited to get in touch to find out more.
