What is crowdfunding?

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

We at Buckfest HQ are devastated that because of the COVID-19 pandemic we cannot proceed with Buckfest 2020 as planned. Not only do we lose a great day of music, food, beer and sunshine (probably) but the charities we were going to support this year - Leonard Cheshire, Huntingdon Community Cancer Network and 3 Pillars Feeding the Homeless – lose out on the vital funding they would have received.

Whilst we can’t have the event, we can still do something to support our charity partners. The first thing we will do is to invite those charity partners to be part of Buckfest 2021.

Secondly, to help them at a time when nearly all fundraising activities are severely curtailed, we are asking all those that would have bought a ticket for the event this year to make a donation instead - any donation, however small will help our charities to provide ongoing support during very testing times.

We are extremely lucky at Buckfest to have a loyal and generous group of sponsors who return year after year. We are also asking them to make a donation, if they are able.

To encourage you all to donate our fearless leader, Rick Holden, will be undertaking an epic bike ride round over the weekend when Buckfest would have taken place. He will be doing 5 separate routes of 100 miles starting and finishing in Brampton each day. These should take in around 20000 feet of climbing and visit Cambs, Beds, Northants and Lincs. If anyone fancies joining in at all some company would be greatly appreciated.

Please help us to help others by donating whatever you can.

Thank you

      Gutted there's no Buckfest this year. It's been a regular calendar event for the past 5 years. Happy to donate our ticket money to help the charities you had chosen to support.
