BMA Litterpicking Volunteers at the Glastonbury Festival, 2019

Bhopal Medical Appeal litter picker at Glastonbury Festival 2019

A scorching hot weekend at the end of June saw thousands of revellers searching for any shade they could find at the Glastonbury Festival. Think then of BMA’s volunteer litter pickers who were doing a full shift each morning!

Fortunately for our volunteers, their shifts start very early and they miss much of the day’s heat, but the work is still hard and requires real dedication. This year, we had more litter pickers than ever, with a team of around 130, and this has become an important fundraiser for the BMA.

Our thanks go to BMA Patron, Michael Eavis, along with Fiona Case, a long-time BMA supporter and a Glastonbury Festivals litter picking teams co-ordinator, and to all of our hard-working volunteers.

We believe Dow must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
