Taking the Hungry for Change message to V2012 in Chelmsford


A team of 16 spent the weekend at V2012 in Chelmsford. They were asking festival goers to sign a petition to David Cameron saying it’s a scandal that a billion people don’t have enough to eat, when the world produces enough food to feed everyone.

As well as rovers – volunteers taking the petition out into the crowds – the stall had one of the busiest years for a long time with the coconut shy proving to be a favourite for encouraging people to visit the stall.

Temperatures soared into the 30s making this year’s VFest the hottest yet but the volunteers continued to gather signatures for the petition.

Over 1500 festival goers signed the petition – a fantastic result for all the hard work.

There was also plenty of time to see the bands, with Stone Roses, David Guetta and The Killers leading the way – whilst a few of us sneaked off for a sing-along with Tom Jones earlier in the day!

The Hungry for Change campaign launches on 1st September – more information shortly!
