April 2007.


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.

festival before applying)

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).
