Creamfields is team up with the 10,000 Hours Foundation for a second year to connect festival fans with voluntary work. This year’s day of volunteering will be held at a hostel for the homeless on Saturday, August 11th.
Halton Lodge in Runcorn provides shelter for people who have been living on the streets or are at risk of becoming homeless. It provides accommodation for 66 individuals and a programme of services and activities to help people back on their feet. Creamfields performer Yousef who is hosting his Circus arena is the first confirmed volunteer for 2018 and will be joining the team to help out on the day.
Up to 20 Creamfields fans will be able to join him, starting with an introduction to volunteer work followed by a chance to gain experience of working in the kitchen, gardening, assisting with an array of holistic and mindfulness classes, and teaching residents production skills in the on-site music studio.
A Halton Lodge spokesperson said: “All of us at Creative Support Halton Lodge are very excited to be partnering with Creamfields and 10,000 Hours this summer. Volunteers are an integral part of the work that we do to support people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. We are looking forward to welcoming our new recruits.”
