Charity Concierge is a social enterprise for festival lovers everywhere. Charity Concierge is ran by Child.org who are working on health initiatives in Kenya and Sierra Leone.
Charity Concierge is a social enterprise for festival lovers everywhere. Each year, we take hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers to the UK and Ireland's best music festival, including Download, Latitude, Camp Bestival, and Electric Picnic. But Charity Concierges won't spend long shifts stewarding in a field. They work at the heart of the festival to bring festival-goers the services they love. Depending on the festival, Charity Concierges will volunteer on:
The Charity Concierge buggy service. Working as either a buggy driver or taxi ground crew member, volunteers will make sure festival-goers can hitch a lift from point A to point B and get where they need to go a little easier. At some festivals, we run the buggy service exclusively for the access campsite to make sure everyone can enjoy the festival as much as possible.
The Charity Concierge fast-track drinks service. The nomads of the arena, our general services volunteers will take drinks orders from festival-goers, collect them using our fast-track lane at the bar, and deliver them to their customers. It's the service we've all wanted at a festival - to get more drinks and be able to keep your spot in the crowd - and our volunteers are the heroes that deliver it.
Tent pitching. A smaller part of the volunteer role, but just as vital. Charity Concierges (provided with a little bit of training) will jump in to rescue festival-goers tied up in a tent pretzel (or the grips of desperation).
In addition to a free ticket to the festival, Charity Concierge offer their volunteers plenty of time off to enjoy themselves with their mates. And the best part? All of the donations earned through the hard work of our volunteers go directly to Child.org, an innovative international development charity pioneering novel global health initiatives and working with mums and children in Kenya and Sierra Leone to improve the health of children in places it's most needed.

Dig Deep is an international development charity which works with Narok and Bomet Counties in the South West of Kenya, where currently 8 out of 10 people lack access to clean water and sanitation.
Since we established in 2007 we have rapidly grown to 10 full-time staff supported by 400+ volunteers based in both Kenya and the UK. By the end of 2019, we had built taps which are now serving over 32,000 people at any one time, constructed toilets which are now serving over 18,000 people at any one time and delivered hygiene and menstrual health training which will benefit over 121,000 people.
Our continued mission now is to support and build the capacity of the County Government to create and improve sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene services for the next generation.
One of our primary fundraising avenues to raise the funds to support this work is through our not for profit Dig Deep Challenges. Established in 2012, Dig Deep Challenges has organised and run numerous international challenges such as climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for over 1200 fundraisers so far providing not only an incredible life-changing experience for these individuals but raised approximately £1.5million to support Dig Deep's charitable objectives over this period.

Eye Heroes are an organisation that aim to teach children the importance of eyesight. We are currently recruiting volunteers to help take on this role.
Eye Heroes is the UK’s first child-led campaign to fight avoidable blindness. Children are trained through volunteer-led interactive workshops in schools and after school clubs to become eye health champions, and inform people in their communities about eye health and the benefits of regular eye tests.
The workshops are run for free by local volunteers, marrying the science of eye health with the pressing need to raise awareness in a fun and memorable way. Eye Heroes workshops are currently aimed at children aged 8-12 and include games, videos, role play and more.
Children are uniquely placed in society with the ability to overcome barriers such as language, problems with mobility, perceived costs associated with eye tests , anxiety and the stigma that can be attached to sight loss. Harnessing this potential to spread powerful messages within diverse communities, Eye Heroes trains children to inform hard-to-reach individuals who are often at greater risk of avoidable sight loss.
Eye Heroes workshops are now running in schools across the UK.
