Away from the music Truck Festival and the Binning family who farm the land, have a long standing history of Charity work with the local community and beyond. Even from our first event back in 1998, all profit from our £3 ticket price was split between Amnesty International and Helen & Douglas House.
Didcot Rotary Club
From the first festival Alan Binning and his friends from Didcot Rotary have provided food whilst raising money for good causes. As the festival has grown and to provide variety for festival goers there is now a range of food provided.
The Charity food stalls are now located in the Feel Good Food Tent – the big green & yellow tent located next to the Main Stage!
All the food stalls in the tent are served and prepared by lovely volunteers and provide a delicious mix of:
- Fruits and Smoothies
- Mac ‘n’ Cheese (trust us, it’s incredible)
- Locally sourced Steak Sandwiches
- Sweets and Ice Cream
- Stone Baked Pizza
- Onion Bhajis
- Lentil Dal
And much more. You can read more about our Food here
All proceeds from the Feel Good Food Tent go to Charities and local community groups. Including:
- Didcot, Faringdon and Witney Rotary
- Steventon and Milton Church
- Scouts and Guides Associations
- Local Schools and Playgroups
- Didcot Train Youth Project

We hope you will take the chance to eat well and support great causes!
Young Women’s Music Project
Through our mandatory guestlist donations, we helped The Young Women’s Music Project (YWMP) based in Oxford. An educational charity based in Oxford, which provides an inclusive and supportive space for young women aged 14-21 to make music together, learn new skills, express themselves, and grow in confidence. In the free music sessions and workshops, the young women make and record music, plan and hold gigs and events, and discuss issues affecting young people.
The Footsteps Centre specialises in the intensive rehabilitation of children and young adults with cerebral palsy, genetic disorders, epilepsy, other neurological and neuromotor disorders and undiagnosed conditions.
Their approach is intensive and child friendly, combining fun and games with traditional physiotherapy exercises.
Footsteps aim to enhance and improve the physical, cognitive and speech development of our patients, as well as increase their confidence and independence. Patients will see tangible and sustainable results which will improve their quality of life and help them to reach their full potential.
In addition, we also support a number of charities and local causes by donating tickets. Please see below:
