Awarding grants to a range of different projects and bodies, the Truck Trust is open to all – with a select range chosen to be supporting initiatives at the show this year.
From the Stevenage festival’s famed Feel Good Food Hall (run by volunteers from the local Faringdon + District Rotary Club), to a vast array of initiatives that incorporate Tickets For Good, UN Women’s Safer Spaces Now and more – Truck Festival is not only an unmissable date in the summer festival diary, but aims to be a make a positive impact on the area it calls home.
