Glastonbury Organisers Have Donated Medical Supplies Meant For The Festival To Emergency Services

Glastonbury are donating essential medical supplies to local emergency services.

After Glastonbury was forced to cancel their 2020 festival due to the coronavirus pandemic, organisers Michael and Emily Eavis have decided to donate medical supplies that were due to be used at the festival to local emergency services.

They have given away a whole load of hand sanitiser, face masks and gloves to frontline emergency services, including NHS staff and Avon and Somerset Police.

Avon and Somerset Police posted to Twitter earlier today (March 24), saying: “On behalf of the A&S Local Resilience Forum we’d like to extend a huge thank you to Michael & @emilyeavis for providing frontline emergency service workers & NHS staff with thousands of litres of hand sanitiser, gloves & face masks due to be used @glastonbury 2020. #SafeTogether

The 50th anniversary edition of the festival was due to be go ahead in June with a lineup boasting acts such as Diana Ross, Lana Del Rey, Dizzee Rascal and Noel Gallagher. However, organisers have said that this is due to remain largely the same for 2021.

Worthy Farm’s historic event birthed in 1970, and has seen the most cutting edge artists grace its fields. Whether it’s David Bowie, Adele, Metallica or Stormzy, the 50th anniversary is set to remember all that came before.
