Our teams have had a busy summer as festival season hit! Both V Festival sites, Leeds and Reading Festivals, Beverley Races Ladies Day and Edinburgh Fringe all had volunteers from local churches, Street Angel, Street Chaplain or Street Pastor groups.
The Leeds Festival
) saw 120 volunteers (along with Bishop of Leeds Nick Baines
) running the Lost Property, a Prayer Cafe and detached teams across the site from 12noon Wednesday to 12noon Monday. At Chelmsford's V Festival
beer goggles, games and a Hall of Fame were featured whilst in Stafford cups of water were handed out, listening ears offered and a prayer space created. In Edinburgh the team patrolled the busy last weekend of the Fringe until the early hours whilst at Reading the Street Pastors
offered a safe place cafe.
We hope to develop festival work over the coming months through the Festival Network
