My Cause UK – Festival Volunteering

Do you fancy volunteering at some of the country’s top festivals and raising funds for Caudwell Children? We’ve partnered with My Cause UK who have provided over 5,000 volunteers to festivals such as Boomtown, Bestival and Download Festival.

They’ve also donated close to £100,000 to various charities over the years.

Sign up to a festival of your choosing through the My Cause UK’s website by paying a refundable deposit, volunteer during the day, get the evenings free to enjoy the music, and when you’re done we’ll get a donation!

We hope you’ll join us this summer at some of the best music festivals in the UK and help us continue to transform the lives of disabled children.

Meet Kenny…


Change your life

Kenny started volunteering with us and he’s now in full-time employed as an Assistant Grants Officer.

“I wanted to get the most out of volunteering at Caudwell Children, so I volunteered in as many departments as they would let me. No day was ever the same. I could be helping to secure prizes for an event one day, helping out on a short break another day, or talking to the parents of disabled children on the phone, giving them advice the next! I really felt like I was developing valuable experience which subsequently got me paid job at the charity.”
