Charities & Glas-Denbury

Glas-Denbury’s main aim is to provide a platform for people in any way we can.  We are passionate about continously supporting charities, local organisations and people. The festival is run by volunteers and strives continuously to be of benefit not only to Denbury and the wider community around it; to people and local businesses in so many ways.  We use local suppliers, offer pitches to local traders, provide a platform for local artists, support local charities and so much more.  Our aim is not only to create enjoyment for everyone who comes to it but to create something lasting for the community.  To bring together the myriad of incredible talents the area has to offer.  To give opportunity to all to partake in creating something that feeds your soul.  We are creating a small, unique bubble of love that champions local artists, businesses, charities and provides opportunity for small businesses to develop alongside us.

The last few years we have seen people develop their own businesses after having been given the opportunity to work at Glas-Denbury.  We want to benefit local businesses in the area; traders, production companies, suppliers of all sorts, pubs, bed and breakfasts, hotels and camp sites.  We are passionate about what we do and why we are doing it and we support people and the community in any way we can; through sponsorship, ticket donations for fundraising, practical support where necessary also by giving a free platform to charities from which they can fundraise or raise awareness through a pitch at the festival or through our social media platforms.  

Below you can find the organisations and charities Glas-Denbury has been privileged to support since we began and the ones so far confirmed for this year. Please go to their websites and see how you can continue this support in so many ways and please do go and say hello to them at the festival.
