There is also the opportunity for staff with DBS certificates to volunteer and help out across the day as volunteers/stewards within the FAMILY ZONE area. If you are interested e-mail:

riverreevesfoundation@gmail.com with the subject header of FESTIVAL VOLUNTEER. We need 40 so first come first served.

 

All proceeds (£12 from each ticket sale) will go to The River Reeves Foundation, which will be working with bus company Arriva NW to build over the coming years a school to school bus fleet that will include a recording studio bus, animation bus, theatre bus, dance bus, and a creative arts bus as well as single decker buses providing mental health support for youngsters across Warrington’s schools as part of the Future in Mind initiative. The buses will tour schools and provide inspiration to youngsters, many from disadvantaged backgrounds as well as wider support for those struggling to access mental health support. We will also be providing bursaries to those from poorer backgrounds to support with post-16, and higher education within the arts and help young people access futures they might not otherwise consider. We have huge ambitions for the charity with the annual music festival being our main fundraiser. Last year 350, this year 5,000, next year over 20,000 on Victoria Park. River and his mates dreamed big and so will we!

See you there!!
