Emily and Michael Eavis, organisers of the Glastonbury Festival, have announced that the Festival donated £2 million to local, national and international charities in 2013.
The main charity beneficiaries were Oxfam, Greenpeace and WaterAid, but hundreds of other causes also benefited.
Oxfam and Greenpeace each received £500,000, and WaterAid received £260,000. The charities had active presences at the summer festival so will have generated more income themselves.
Some of the smaller or local charities that also received donations include Ansford School PTA, Bath City Farm, CND Cymru, Friends of Somerset Young Carers Project, Huckyduck Carnival Club, The Rotary Club Of Avalon, and Wookey Hole Cricket Club.
The father and daughter team said:
“We are very proud to be able to support so many great causes. Thank you to everyone who comes to the Festival for making this possible.”
