Truck Festival has announced details of its comprehensive In The Community programme and the impact its 2023 initiatives had on causes and organisations across Oxfordshire and beyond.
Leading the way to ensure that the festival’s impact is both positive and extends further than just the festival weekend, 2023’s Truck In The Community programme ensured over £161,000 was raised for causes, campaigns and organisations across a wide array of different charity sectors. Through a combination of partnerships, opportunities and wider grant funding through Truck In The Community and the Truck Trust – Truck Festival once again stepped up as a festival who do more than simply box-tick, embracing their role as a meaningful event to drive positive change.
Spanning out across several arms, the event’s work involves donating proceeds raised during the festival as well as partnering with key initiatives, such as UN Women’s Safer Spaces Now campaign, that helps to ensure a safer and more inclusive festival experience can be had by those who attend Truck Festival. Also this year the Truck Trust continued to grow the festival’s annual fundraising and charitable donations even further, whilst allowing opportunities for more charities and organisations to apply for funding. 2023/24 grants included:
