We have a long tradition of supporting charities. We currently support:
HOPE is a Herefordshire based charity set up to support young people and children when a close family member is diagnosed with a life threatening illness. They offer support from the moment of diagnosis and for however long after they are needed. We are proud of the large role HOPE play at our festival ever year.
Midlands Air Ambulance is the charity responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances serving the communities of six Midlands counties: Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands. This constitutes the largest air ambulance operating region in the UK. We collect for the Air Ambulance in change tins at the Yew Tree Inn.
We also currently support Bees for Development, who assists beekeepers living in poor and remote areas of the world, and raises awareness about the value of beekeeping for poverty alleviation. They are granted free use of our event room.
We believe strongly in the message of Papyrus. Papyrus is the national charity for the prevention of young suicide. They deliver awareness and prevention training, provide confidential support and suicide intervention through HOPELineUK, campaign and influence national policy, and empower young people to lead suicide prevention activities in their own communities.
