Every year over 200,000 people attend the Glastonbury Festival in England - the largest greenfield festival of arts and music in the world. Thanks to the Festival’s co-organiser and White Ribbon Alliance Champion Emily Eavis, for nearly a decade WRA has been able to tell festival goers about our work and raise awareness for maternal health in a fun way. Over the last few years people have queued up for our ‘Mum’ tattoos, featured in national media on the arms of celebrities ranging from Emma Watson to Naomi Campbell. We’ve said ‘Hello Mum’ via interactive ‘on stage polaroids’ to show love and respect to mothers the world over. This year we were at our tent in The Park again, where we created the world’s biggest drum roll to ‘make a noise for mothers’ on 26th June 2015.
