Charity

Charity fundraising has always been at the heart of Truck since the first festival back in 1998. Truck has now raised £500,000 for charity since 2014 with a continuous increase in charity donations year on year!

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.

Feel Good Food Hall

Truck’s famous Feel Good Food Hall is always a huge hit! Entirely run by volunteers from the local Faringdon and District Rotary Club, it is a staple of the Festival with 10+ local charities and over 150 volunteers producing delicious, home cooked tasty meals to our hungry Truckers! Situated right next to the Main Stage serving incredible Steak Sandwiches, Smoked Salmon on toast, highly recommended Mac & Cheese or classic Tea and Scones – they have it all!

All profits go to the charities and Truck gives each stall the opportunity to raise awareness of their charity partner. In 2022 alone the Food Hall donated £100,000 to 10 local charities.
