Beyond The Woods is an intimate gathering of friends, music lovers and party-goers, tucked away in a beautiful corner of the Lincolnshire countryside
On Thursday, we were absolutely devastated when we announced that, because of the inclement weather, this year's Beyond The Woods Festival would not be going ahead.
One of the things we were left with, as we began to take the site apart, was a large pile of BTW 2019 T-Shirts.
These t-shirts can't be used again, as they've got this year's date and line-up on them. We also can't send them back, and so over the weekend we've been trying to work out what we could use them for.
After giving it some thought, we've decided that we'd like to sell the t-shirts for charity.
Although we were very disappointed when this weekend's weather forced us to call off BTW 2019, there were some people, probably not too far away, who had much more to think about than a cancelled music festival.
The Nomad Trust, part of YMCA Lincolnshire, does valuable work in helping homeless and vulnerable people across our county. They also run the county's only emergency night shelter, which aims to take people off the street, feed and clothe them, and set them on the path to more permanent accommodation.
Under the circumstances, we couldn't think of a more worthwhile cause, and so we are now selling this year's merchandise, for just £5, with money raised benefiting The Nomad Trust.
We'd like to add a massive thank you to this year's t-shirt sponsor, Anne's Vans, who very kindly paid for our staff and crew t-shirts to be produced, and have agreed that they can now be sold for charity.
Anne's Vans, who are based in Lincolnshire, provide quality, vintage VW campervan hire services. Their vans are available for holidays, weddings, festivals, parties and corporate events.
