European volunteers help with festival salvage

60 young people from across Europe are at Leeds Festival to make sure it is environmentally friendly. They will join the 'Everything is Possible' team in salvaging abandoned camping equipment left in a good or reusable condition. This equipment will then be passed on through a "community exchange".

This is a fantastic opportunity to give to young people who couldn’t normally access this kind of event the chance to see their favourite bands while helping the local community and environment. A lot of organisations working with young people or the homeless, for example, could really make use of this equipment.

– Clair Brown, co-founder of Everything is Possible
