Since our very first festival in 2008 we have been delighted to work with the fabulous, energetic and very smiley volunteers at our charity partner Willow!
50p from every ticket sold for Folk by the Oak is donated to the charity, which is the only national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days.
These are days when they and their families reconnect and refocus on each other while enjoying an activity of their choosing. A day for them, a day about them and a day that will create the memories that will be treasured forever.
For some their Special Day is the opportunity to return some normality back into their lives. For others it is the last chance to fulfil a dream. But for all, at what is often the most difficult of times, a Special Day is a life-affirming experience that can lift spirits, increase morale and reunify families.
Over the last 13 years Folk by the Oak have raised over £95,755.27 through ticket contributions, the generosity of the crowd on the day and our 2020 Family Nest Fest fundraising. This is a phenomenal amount and all goes to support Willow's vital work.
