Returning for their fourth consecutive year, Teenage Cancer Trust, Bloodstock’s chosen charity, have announced that they will once again have a stall on-site and will be running their ever-popular T-shirt Amnesty.
Festival-goers can bring along their old, unwanted rock and metal shirts to donate, or pick up a vintage bargain at the stall in the main market place. They also have some brand new, box-fresh T-shirts for less than £10 each! Anyone can donate band merchandise they no longer want in order to help the charity’s coffers… a bit like a festival charity shop! They’ll also be selling Teenage Cancer Trust merchandise (wristbands, badges, T-shirts, etc) and holding a daily raffle featuring cool prizes, including an exclusive Phil Lynott print and T-shirt designed by Jamie Hewlett for Pretty Green, a Gibson Les Paul Classic guitar signed by Velvet Revolver and a bag of signed KISS goodies, including a signed drum skin and sticks. Keep an eye out for the Teenage Cancer Trust bucket collectors too – the charity are hoping to smash their fundraising target this year by raising at least £7,500. You can also donate by texting FESTIVAL to 70300, which donates £3 to Teenage Cancer Trust.
Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for young people with cancer aged between 13 and 24. They fund and build specialist units in NHS hospitals and provide dedicated staff, bringing young people together so they can be treated by teenage cancer experts in the best place for them. The charity also educates young people in schools about cancer to help improve the speed and quality of diagnosis. Teenage Cancer Trust relies on donations to fund their vital work. Help transform the lives of young people with cancer. Visit www.teenagecancertrust.org.
