100 painted bins at Glastonbury to raise funds for CARE International

100 painted bins at Glastonbury to raise funds for CARE International

Pirate party entertainer and maths supply teacher Captain Dan Tastic is once again raising funds for CARE International UK by painting personalised bins at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

Festival-goers are making donations of at least £25 to have a bin decorated with an image and message of their choice. A scan of recent donations made to the fundraising campaign on JustGiving suggests that most people are donating £30 or more.

Captain Tastic raised £5,000 for the charity with his painted bins from the last Glastonbury Festival.

Design requests for this year include an engagement announcement, a tribute to Cecil the Lion, Peppa Pig holding a balloon, and a Jack Daniels whisky bottle label but with a friend’s name in place of the eponymous founder.

Dan Tastic is also running the London Marathon this month in aid of CARE International, and previously cycled from Morocco to Portugal to raise £3,000.

 

• Thanks to Paul de Gregorio for spotting this. He says Glastonbury should never be referred to as ‘Glasto’. Never.
