Music Festival supports Pod Charity

Charity News / 18 May 2018 Music Festival supports Pod Charity

We are delighted that last year we raised over £950 at Vinestock Music Festival which was held at the Vine in Cheltenham to help raise money for Pod Charity

Fresh green turf and straw bales fill The Vine pub as they recreate an outdoor festival vibe come rain or shine! The weekend event is a great community occasion as it’s completely free to attend. 

Our amazing team of volunteers help to fundraise through a raffle, face painting and of course the “guess the number of sweets” competition!

As Pod Charity has no office overheads, we can proudly say that 100% of the money raised will be going directly to our projects around the world. Every penny donated by the wonderful folk at Vinestock will make a difference.

The funds raised helped to support the following projects:
