How would you like an all expenses paid trip to the Latitude Festival this summer, courtesy of Banana Link?

The Worker's Beer Company have allocated Banana Link places for volunteers to work on their bars at the festival. In return for working shifts on their bars, the WBC donates money to Banana Link at a rate of £7 per person per hour worked. 
 
Also, you get free entry to the whole event and when not working you can enjoy the sights and sounds during your time off. You will be provided with a couple of drinks vouchers at the end of each shift, meal vouchers and a secure camping area is provided with its own toilets, showers and a subsidised canteen and bar. 
 
Please let comms@bananalink.org.uk know if you are interested in attending by Friday 14 April at the latest.
