A MUSIC festival isn’t the obvious place to start saving the world, but at Bestival in Dorset, UK you can go some way to saving the endangered kiwi .
All we needed to do when we headed to Bestival earlier this month… was drink.
Old Mout Cider had set up a Kiwi Camp at the festival which became a refuge to revellers looking for some downtime in between the impressive music acts (think Grace Jones, London Grammar, a Chaka Khan and much much more).
When you entered the camp for the first time you pressed your thumb into a pad of ink and daubed your print against the doorway – thus donating 20p to the kiwi cause.
The Kiwi Camp wasn’t just about giving though – plenty of rewards were to be reaped.
Crucially for any festival-goer, it offered free glitter and face painting – particularly handy when other stalls in the grounds charged you a small fortune.
