    Child.org - Charity Concierge

    Charity Concierge is a social enterprise for festival lovers everywhere. Each year, we take hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers to the UK and Ireland's best music festivals

    Charity Concierge is a social enterprise for festival lovers everywhere. Each year, we take hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers to the UK and Ireland's best music festivals, including Download, Latitude, Camp Bestival, and Electric Picnic. But Charity Concierges won't spend long shifts stewarding in a field. They work at the heart of the festival to bring festival-goers the services they love. Depending on the festival, Charity Concierges will volunteer on:

     

    • The Charity Concierge buggy service. Working as either a buggy driver or taxi ground crew member, volunteers will make sure festival-goers can hitch a lift from point A to point B and get where they need to go a little easier. At some festivals, we run the buggy service exclusively for the access campsite to make sure everyone can enjoy the festival as much as possible.

    • The Charity Concierge fast-track drinks service. The nomads of the arena, our general services volunteers will take drinks orders from festival-goers, collect them using our fast-track lane at the bar, and deliver them to their customers. It's the service we've all wanted at a festival - to get more drinks and be able to keep your spot in the crowd - and our volunteers are the heroes that deliver it.

    • Tent pitching. A smaller part of the volunteer role, but just as vital. Charity Concierges (provided with a little bit of training) will jump in to rescue festival-goers tied up in a tent pretzel (or the grips of desperation). 

     

    In addition to a free ticket to the festival, Charity Concierge offer their volunteers plenty of time off to enjoy themselves with their mates. And the best part? All of the donations earned through the hard work of our volunteers go directly to Child.org, an innovative international development charity pioneering novel global health initiatives and working with mums and children in Kenya and Sierra Leone to improve the health of children in places it's most needed.
