I work in the music industry and most people know of a charity called RACPA UK which is Rock Against Child Pornography and Abuse. They are a great bunch of people who work tirelessly to make people aware of the dangers of online predators and rather than coming along asking for money they come to our festival to talk to people at their stall. We are a big family friendly event and they are the first people booked every year. Next year they are taking the stage for one of the acoustic slots to talk to people as a group about what they do.
Next year we are also bringing in the biggest anti bully charity to the festival. Again based around us being a family event we want to help educate people regarding the dangers of cyberbullying and these people at Bullies Out are fantastic at bringing awareness for such things.
We aren’t doing % of tickets to the charity of % of the bar. The charities will run their own raffles and have their own collection buckets. We’re more laid back so we will help them in many other ways.
