Mid Somerset Series supports WaterAid at Glastonbury

We are delighted to announce a media partnership with sister titles the Western Daily Press and Central Somerset Gazette!

As the country, and especially Somerset, gears up for the Glastonbury Festival, the papers are highlighting the work of WaterAid, our Pump up the volume campaign, and why the Festival is such a strong supporter.

To find out more, the papers recently visited Mozambique, where Michael and Emily Eavis visited in 2006. You can see a short film of the visit here:

Journalists are reporting back about the ongoing work, and how support here in the UK is helping communities in the country's capital, Maputo. You can follow the reporting online at or see the selection of latest stories on the right of this page.

The papers are also encouraging readers to donate and to sign up to our Glastonbury campaign – Pump up the volume - which urges us all to call on world leaders to ensure that everyone, everywhere has access to safe water and sanitation by 2030.

This video features Michael explaining just why he supports WaterAid:
