Hope Farming at Hop Farm Festival

Hop Farm festival was brimming over with great music, eccentric characters and a whole lotta fresh hope. The stand out performance came from Damien Rice who we were honoured to meet the following day. We were fascinated to hear that, despite his success, he chooses to live a gypsy life, always on the move and with few possessions, just as we do. Read more about the Tree4Hope and how we’re spreading hope and inspiring acts of kindness with The Band4Hope Project.

This caught my eye during Damien Rice - We were so lucky to meet the troubadour himself later. Despite his success, he still lives a gypsy life.
