No lack of water at Glastonbury
A Rutherglen woman is heading back to the UK’s biggest music festival this week.
But Rosaleen Kelly won’t be at Glastonbury simply to see the likes of Muse, Coldplay and Adele.
Instead she will be rallying support for the WaterAid charity’s #ToiletsSaveLives campaign.
The campaign calls on world leaders to reach everyone, everywhere with taps and toilets.
Rosaleen, 38, was at Glastonbury last year with the charity having supported WaterAid’s work for the past four years.
She works as a communications officer for Scottish Water and last year helped gain 46,166 signatures for a petition calling on the UK Government to make sure the Sustainable Development Goals includes a target to reach everyone, everywhere with taps and toilets by 2030
She will work in one of the many water kiosks, supplying fresh, clean drinking water to festival goers, joining an army of 470 dedicated WaterAid volunteers making a splash at Worthy Farm this year.
The former Trinity High pupil said: “I’m really proud to have been selected to represent WaterAid at Glastonbury.
“Access to safe water and improved sanitation really can transform lives.
“This will be a great opportunity to get fellow festival-goers thinking about the realities of life without safe water and toilets and to help engage thousands of people in a cause I feel passionately about.”
