Stories & Events Festival Hitch UK Costs and fundraising Cost To sign up for the project, we ask for a £95 deposit. This secures your place on the project, and will be returned to you within two working weeks of having completed your fundraising, hitch-hike and volunteering at the festival. The £95 is a proportion of the full deposit (the value of a festival ticket). If you cancel, this will only be refunded in exceptional circumstances. Once onsite, if you miss any shifts we will retain this and take the rest of the deposit (£115-£145) from the same card. As stated above, upon completion of your last shift this will be returned to you within two weeks. For more information about the deposit please see our FAQs. Please note: you will have to cover the cost of your return transport for the festival and food throughout the experience. Fundraising We also ask you to fundraise £200 to take part in the event and provide a huge amount of support to help you get there. From providing physical materials to giving you resources such as a step-by-step guide to run a pub quiz, we’re with you every step of the way to your target. We’ll even support you to raise beyond your target – if you raise £300, we’ll reward you with a free East African Playgrounds hoodie upon your arrival to the campsite! Fundraising Support We have a huge number of online resources, which you can view here. We run monthly webinars on how to hit your target: you can watch some past ones here. We also have Andy, our Events Manager, on hand to answer any questions you might have and to help formulate a fundraising plan with you – you can get hold of him on [email protected].
