Glastonbury Raised £105,000 For Oxfam Refugee Appeal | Music News
Glastonbury’s charity auction in aid of Oxfam’s Refugee Appeal has raised a total of £105,000, festival organiser Emily Eavis has announced. The Glastonbury Festival auction saw tickets and items being sold primarily via online retailer eBay.
Beyond tickets, auction-items included a tour of Worthy Farm (where Glastonbury Festival is held each year), by founder Michael Eavis, an opportunity to DJ at the festival, pieces of art, and the opportunity to press the ‘fire’ button on the enormous pyrotechnic-spider dance stage, Arcadia.
Emily Eavis, speaking about the auctions earlier this year, stated, “The plight of the refugees who have left their homes due to fear and aggression has moved everyone in the Glastonbury Festival team and we want to do something to help. We hope this auction will raise many thousands of pounds so that Oxfam can deliver the support these people so desperately need”.
