We’re never happier than when we’re on Worthy Farm, and it’s all thanks to your incredible support.

2015 was a huge year for us at Glastonbury. We knew that, when the festival ended, we’d be just weeks away from finding out if world leaders had agreed to a dedicated Global Goal on water and sanitation.

This meant your signatures were more important than ever before – which is why we were so thrilled when an astounding 46,181 of you added your names to our Make it Happen petition, to help spread the word that taps and toilets transform lives.

And the good news is – it worked!

In September, 17 new Global Goals came into force, designed to end extreme poverty by 2030 – with #Goal6 dedicated to clean water and sanitation.

That means, for the first time ever, world leaders have publicly acknowledged that taps and toilets are vital for eradicating poverty. This simply wouldn’t have been possible without your support.

Watch our best bits from Glastonbury 2015 here:

Of course, now the Global Goals are in place, we have another big challenge ahead of us: making sure world leaders fulfil the promises they’ve made and keep the Goals on track.

But with your support behind us we know anything is possible. We can’t wait to see you again in 2016, so we can tell you more about the incredible journey we’re on to get safe, clean water and toilets to the world’s poorest communities.

See you on the farm!
