Thanks to the Hotbox team at Reading 2022! I thought you were very organised and well prepared for the volunteers. I volunteered on the fire tower and worked in a couple of different campsites. The shifts varied from an empty field in the first few hours prior to the festival opening to helping with small issues in the campsite in the first minute of opening! The other volunteers were very friendly and everyone was happy to talk and work their shifts. It was definitely worth doing for a number of reasons - attending the festival, meeting people, trying something new, volunteering for your CV, etc. Plus the staff boat along the Thames was a real bonus! I look forward to volunteering again next year!
