Oxfam is recruiting 500 volunteers to work across the two CarFest festival sites and classic car enthusiasts are being urged to apply.
The two events, held in Hampshire and Cheshire, are the brainchild of BBC Radio 2’s Chris Evans and Oxfam is offering car and festival lovers the opportunity to become part of the on-the-ground team which will make CarFest happen. As well as being a fun and rewarding experience, volunteering as a steward will help raise money for Oxfam’s life-changing work around the world.
Applicants do not need experience, but must be aged 18 or over and willing to take part in Oxfam’s Steward Training Scheme. Each volunteer will be required to work a shift of up to eight hours and, in return, stewards will be provided with staff camping, meals while on duty, warm showers and, when not on shift, be free to enjoy the event as they please.
CarFest will take place on 25-26 August at Laverstoke Park Farm in Hampshire and on 8-9 September at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire. Chris’s vision has caught the public’s imagination with tickets for both events having already sold out. However, CarFest North has now been increased in size and the extra tickets go on sale next week.
Nicola Meadley, CarFest Event Director, said: “We’re very much looking forward to welcoming a group of car-mad volunteers to CarFest.”
Raising money for BBC Children in Need, thefestival will combine classic cars and live music to hopefully create the perfect family-friendly event.
