A day in the life of Oxfam on Tour from Oxfam Novib
On the 6th September we had the pleasure of Oxfam Novib taking over the oxfamontour twitter account and giving us a live minute by minute update of what it was like to be on tour and what exciting things happen at any given time whilst campaigning at a Coldplay gig. Here is a lowdown of what happen just in chance you missed the twitter feeds:
09.24 Today is Coldplay-day. This afternoon 20 Oxfam Novib volunteers will promote the GROW campaign @Coldplay in The Hague, the Netherlands. Now preparing final stuff at the office.
12.06 The city is bustling. Fences are being placed. Food stalls are coming in. The first fans are already waiting and Rachel already set up the Oxfam stall! Nice!
13.10 Off to Coldplay!
15.09 All volunteers are in and ready to rumble. We put up balloons, a flag and some nice T-shirts. After the briefing everybody is ready to g(r)o(w)!
15.18 Mhh. So far this live blog-experiment… We are in a 3G-deadzone… Not able to upload any pics and blogs it seems. But hè, I keep on trying! And follow us on @oxfamontour or #lovefoodhateinjustice or www.oxfam.org/coldplay!
16:58 As fans wait for Coldplay our volunteers are the real stars of the venue. Dressed up as corn, bananas, pea and tomato they gather as many new GROW-supporters as possible! Nice work!
21:00 And at 2100 hours its showtime!
