The partnership will be a perfect fit for Oxfam - exciting, passionate, and dynamic - and will help our overseas development work in emergencies such as the West Africa food crisis and long-term development work in Haiti. Our team will be at the festival and I, for one, am really looking forward to soaking up the atmosphere and hearing some excellent music and telling festival-goers all about our work.”
