    2014's event was also a record breaker for official charity partner THE TEENAGE CANCER TRUST. With your help BLOODSTOCK 2014 smashed last year's fundraising total for the fourth year in a row and raised the charity more than £9000 via a combination of guest list donations, daily prize raffle tickets, coin buckets on site and their very popular 'T-Shirt Amnesty' whereby fest go-ers can bring along their unwanted band shirts and pick up a vintage bargain for a few quid from the charity's on-site stall. Jen Walker, spokesperson for THE TEENAGE CANCER TRUST comments: "We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported us over the weekend by buying a raffle ticket, popping some change into a bucket, donating any unwanted T-shirts or, indeed, sifting through and buying one – no matter how you did it, we are extremely grateful and your generosity will make a huge difference to the lives of teenagers and young adults with cancer throughout the UK. As always, none of this would have been possible without the support of the Bloodstock Team and Family – thank you for choosing us again and let’s make 2015, our five-year anniversary, the biggest and best yet!"
