Last May Oxfam’s recycling facility was hit by a fire, wiping out heaps of clothing stored for their many festival shops. This year they are calling out for donations to ensure that shops at the likes of Latitude and Bestival can go ahead, and that you can secure some eco bargains ahead of your festival antics.
The charity is asking Festival-goers not only to support the charity’s festival shop onsite or online, by donating clothing, fancy dress items or accessories to their local Oxfam shop or donation bank across the UK.
Last year the festival shops raised £250,000 by selling everything from vintage dresses and sunglasses, jumpers, wellies to outrageous fancy dress. Working to a different mood board for each festival, dedicated fashion teams spend a whole year collating the correct stock to ensure the shop caters to the specific revelers needs from tea dresses at Latitude, wildlife themed for Bestival, tweed for Isle of Wight and fake furs for Leeds.
If you want to kit yourself out, then visit their festival website.
