I was very mindful not to abuse or take advantage of their generosity, but when I did find myself in a position I needed to speak with them they were always there and gave 100 and 10 % to me. I never once felt like I was in the dark about anything… and when working in a festival environment this is the best support I could have ever asked for!” 2014 Participant
