Glastonbury Festival gave over £2 million to good causes in 2015

May 14, 2016

We’re pleased to report that in 2015, Glastonbury Festival was, once again, able to give over £2 million to our supported causes.

Over the past three years we have been able to make core donations to our main three supported causes – Oxfam, Greenpeace, WaterAid – of £3.75 million; with total donations of over £6 million to worthy causes, both local and international, since the Festival’s last fallow year.

As well as our main three beneficiaries, the Festival has continued to support hundreds of worthy causes, schools and sports groups. There are too many to list, but a selection of them is listed below.

In 2015 we were also humbled by the generous support of everyone who took part in our fundraising auction and raffle in aid of Oxfam’s Refugee Appeal, which generated over £105,000 directly to Oxfam, in addition to the Festival’s donations.

Thank you to everyone who contributed by coming to the Festival; fundraising in the Oxfam appeal; and to all the incredible volunteers whose support and time makes these donations possible.

Emily and Michael
