Since being established in 2006, Trekstock has raised thousands of pounds for the Teenage Cancer Trust. The idea originated when its founder, Sophie Epstone, signed up for a Teenage Cancer Trust trek to Everest. To raise money, she conceived the idea to put on a little music gig, pushing her to visit the UK festivals, spread the word about Teenage Cancer Trust and promote the event using her now cult 'I love Trekstock' blue badges. The message grew far and wide, as did the support from world famous artists and celebrities.
Trekstock has had a presence promoting Teenage Cancer Trust at all of the UK's biggest and best festival including Glastonbury, Bestival, V Festival, Leeds Festival, The Mighty Boosh Festival, Underage, O2 Wireless and Hard Rock Calling.

Planeat’s mission is to create awareness of the health and environmental benefits of a plant-based diet. It encourages consumers to reduce their meat and dairy consumption, and be inspired by plant-based cuisine.
The team behind Planeat have made a film, based on scientific research, which explores the positive impact that switching to a plant-based diet has, not only on your individual health, but also on the health of the planet as a whole. The film has three main messages: inspire consumers to reduce their meat and dairy consumption, and instead cook whole plant-based dishes; encourage businesses to put whole, plant-based options on the menu and influence governments to stop subsidising factory farming, and instead support small-scale organic farming.
