Ringo Starr is backing a Glastonbury Festival campaign for clean water, supporting an initiative for WaterAid at the Worthy Farm event. Ringo has designed a badge along with other artists which will be available to festival-goers.
Badges will be handed out at WaterAid kiosks at the festival as part of a campaign for safe drinking water.
Starr’s creation features a flowing stream with the words “peace, love, water”.
He said: “I have always supported WaterAid because I believe everyone on this planet has a right to have clean water. “They asked me to create a special badge for Glastonbury Festival and you can get it and show your support for their great work when you visit WaterAid’s water kiosks at the festival. Peace and love, Ringo.”
All badges will be free to revellers from WaterAid’s 37 kiosks run by the charity’s volunteers at Worthy Farm. The designs are part of a campaign calling for everyone everywhere to have access to clean water and hygienic toilets. he Cure and Norwegian singer Sigrid have also joined the Access Denied campaign and designed their own badges. On the back of each badge will be a link to a WaterAid prize draw, with the chance to win tickets to Glastonbury in 2020.
