Volunteer as a Charity Concierge

Transform lives by volunteering as a Charity Concierge at Latitude.

Child.org is a small charity working to give every child an equal opportunity. Every Charity Concierge volunteer on site makes a real difference to the work that they do. This year the charity is creating pregnancy support groups for isolated young mums living in rural Kenya, where one in 26 babies don’t live to see their first birthday.

FUN WORK: drive a festival taxi or serve drinks in the crowd right in front of the main stage!

REAL IMPACT: each concierge can raise enough to support eight young new mums in rural Kenya!

GREAT PEOPLE: hang out with like-minded heroes – or come with your mates & work the same shifts.
