We've teamed up with My Cause UK to give you the chance to volunteer at some top festivals this summer including Lovebox, Shambala, Boomtown and many, many more! To get involved all you need to do is find the festival you want to volunteer at on the My Cause UK website, select Action Against Hunger as your chosen charity and apply. In return for volunteering a few hours of your time, My Cause UK will make a donation to Action Against Hunger – simple!
