Glastonbury Festival has donated hand sanitiser, masks and gloves to emergency services.

The 50th anniversary edition of the festival, which was due to take place from the 24th – 28th June this year, was cancelled earlier this month amid the ongoing coronavirus, or COVID-19, pandemic. 

Following the cancellation, Avon & Somerset Police shared that Glastonbury Festival had donated thousands of litres of hand sanitiser, medical-grade masks, and gloves to frontline emergency service workers & NHS staff.

The BBC also recently announced they would be broadcasting a “celebration of Glastonbury” in June following the cancellation.
