Essex: Pick up a V Festival tent and raise money for charity

Abandoned tents from the V Festival are being sold to raise money for good causes.

More than 200 volunteers helped Kelvedon and District Rotary Club remove more than 800 tents in two days from Hylands Park, Chelmsford.

They are being sold at Manor Workshop in Church Road, Little Bentley, today, tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday, from 11am to 3pm each day.

Prices start from £5 each and other camping items will be sold from £3.

It is hoped between £4,000 and £5,000 will be raised for Essex charities, Rotary Disaster Response and the Rotary Foundation.

For more information call 07802 282193.

Seems incredible that, in these hard times, 800 festivalgoers are so rich that they can afford to leave their tents behind.

I'd like to think that the festival goers thought 'I'll leave my tent behind so that the organisers can sell it for charity'....However, I suspect, in reality, after spending £300 on tickets and a weekend of over-priced boozing and food they probably just couldn't be bothered to pack up their grubby £30 tent impregnated with I-shudder-to-think-w
hat bodily fluids...The increasingly common answer for a lot of individuals these days: 'It's somebody else's problem...'
