Hay Festival - Macmillan Car Park

Work In Progress Towards This Year's Hay Festival
The Macmillan Car Park will be open for the duration of this year's Hay Festival as in previous years. The Festival takes place from Thursday May 25th to Sunday June 4th.

This year it is all pay on the gate as no advance bookings are being taken.

The size of the car park has been increased so there should not be any problem in finding a space.

A donation from the proceeds will be forwarded to Macmillan Cancer Support which will help projects in Herefordshire and Mid-Wales.

Meanwhile Herefordshire Council’s crematorium has donated £5,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support through the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management’s (ICCM) Recycling of Metals Scheme.

In the last year, Macmillan Cancer Support has adopted 25 new posts at Hereford County Hospital and the donation will help the charity to deliver extensive training and development to their team at the Trust.

Emma Garvey, Macmillan Cancer Support Fundraising Manager for Herefordshire, said: “Macmillan Cancer Support in Herefordshire would like to thank the bereaved families, Hereford Crematorium and the ICCM for their generous donation of £5,000. Macmillan improves the lives of people affected by cancer, providing practical, medical, emotion and financial support. Macmillan strives to improve cancer care and provide high quality support to those affected by cancer and their families."
