Glastonbury 2011- the recruit begins!

STOP PRESS! A huge thanks to everybody who has applied but we have now stopped accepting applications for this year’s Glastonbury! Keep up to date with for news of the 2013 Glastonbury!

Have you always wanted to support a charity like Kiota but not been sure how to go about it? By volunteering at the UK’s biggest music festival you could raise money for Kiota supporting girls in Tanzania whilst watching your favourite bands! All we ask is that you are prepared to get your hands dirty; you would need to pick litter at the site early each morning but in return for your hard work, you would receive a ticket to the festival, access to hot showers and two free meals per day. Your dedication also raises over £100 per volunteer for Kiota which is why we encourage applications from serious applicants only please. We are serious about our charity and over the years, the Kiota crew have built up an enviable reputation amongst the festival recyclers!

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 or Erica at to apply or find out more.
