Five days, 450 WaterAid volunteers, lots of rain, 10 water kiosks, 2,400 toilets, and a load of fun. Thank you to everybody who cleaned toilets, gave out water, staffed our she pees, collected all that recycling, and signed our petition to help bring safe water and sanitation to everyone, everywhere! We salute you!

Having a safe, private toilet is a basic human right. But unbelievably, one in three people around the world don’t have access to a loo. That means people get ill and deadly diseases spread fast.

There’s nothing we love more than being on Worthy Farm, and this year incredible volunteers helped us shine a spotlight on an unsung hero of Glastonbury.
