Almost 20,000 of you signed our LooQueue petition to encourage the UK Government to reach even more of the world’s poorest people to safe water and sanitation. All these signatures have now been handed directly to the International Development Secretary. Power to the people!
“Glastonbury is one of the best places for campaigning,” said Rhian Lewis, WaterAid UK campaigns manager, “People are engaged, interested and they know that by adding support to campaigns like ours, they are helping to change things for the better.”
The Lauren Laverne, Eliza Doolittle and Emmy the Great-designed temporary tattoos went down an absolute storm at the Festival. Around 10,000 Festival goers inked themselves up to show support for WaterAid and raise awareness of global water issues. We also had the great pleasure of a WaterAid blog written by Emmy the Great, a John Peel stage shout out by Raghu Dixit and meeting up with Paul Sartin from Bellowhead. Thank you Glastonbury!
