Youth Team Oxfam House John Smith Drive Cowley Oxford OX4 2JY. April 2007. Hi, Summer is approaching fast. To apply to campaign with Oxfam at the various festivals that we’re attending, you need to print off and complete: - one Section A form - a relevant Section B form for the festival(s) you wish to apply for. You also need to attach your deposit cheque (payable to ‘Oxfam’ for £155). This equates to the cost of a ticket to a festival, and is refunded to you after the festival ON COMPLETION OF YOUR CAMPAIGNING SHIFTS. Sign to show your agreement with the terms and conditions, and please include 2 passport photos with your application. Please send all this to the address on the forms. The on-site dates for festivals in 2007: (please make sure you are available for the whole festival before applying) Isle of Wight: Thursday 8th June – Sunday 11th June Glastonbury: Wednesday 20th June – Sunday 24th June NASS: Thursday 5th July – Sunday 8th July V Festival (Stafford/Chelmsford): Thursday 16th August – Sunday 19th August Reading/Leeds: Thursday 23rd August – Sunday 26th August. You are required to work a 4-hour campaigning shift per day of the festival. You must be 18 or over on the first on-site day. You should not apply for a campaigning place at a festival if you have already accepted a stewarding place at the same festival. If you are accepted, you will receive an acceptance e-mail once we have processed your form. This acceptance will be conditional on your cheque being processed and your references being checked. If you are unsuccessful in your application, your forms and cheque will be posted back to you. Once you have applied and been accepted, you can drop out without losing your deposit as long as you notify us at least 7 days before the above start date for each festival. A £10 admin fee will be deducted from your refund. If you have any questions about campaigning, please call 0870 010 8553. Places to campaign at festivals are donated to us by generous festival organisers. It is our duty to fill these places in Oxfam’s best interests. We have asked you to briefly outline why you would make a good Oxfam festival campaigner. Selection will be based on this, as well as previous festival campaigning experience and membership of your local Outreach group. No places are guaranteed – send in your forms asap to stand a better chance! Good luck – and see you in the summer! Best wishes Chris Rose Project Manager (National Outreach).
