As you probably know, this year’s Glastonbury Festival has been cancelled.
It’s a perfectly understandable decision given the situation, but it does leave Children’s World in a very difficult position.
Having just recovered financially from the last fallow year (2018), we had set up a special Fund Raising Committee to concentrate on raising money to cover the next fallow year – which we were assuming would be 2022 at the earliest.
Now that this year’s Festival is no more – it leaves a very large whole in our finances with no chance to make up the loss!
At the time of writing, we’re not sure what will happen to Children’s World – we will be meeting our Trustees in the next few days to assess the situation.
Since announcing on our social media sites, we have been overwhelmed by the kind words of support from our friends! One friend in particular has written to her MP about the plight of charities like us and whether there could be any state support.
We think this is a great idea and would encourage others to do the same! Below is a copy of the letter should you wish to use it.
Thank you all for your support and we hope to see you all again soon! In the meantime – stay safe!
