‘VIPee’ charity auction gives punters the chance to bid for festival tickets and win their very own luxury portable loo for the weekend.
Festival accreditation & access control company ID&C are sponsoring the award winning* LeeFest's unique competition to win festival tickets and... the world's most glamorous portable loo.
The annual music festival in South-East London that began in a schoolboy’s back garden, is returning for its sixth year this summer. Headlined by the UK no.1 artist DJ Fresh , Fenech-Soler and British Sea Power, this grass roots gig has clearly established itself as a festival to be reckoned with.
Lee Denny, festival founder and director, measures the event’s growing success in terms of the portable loo count:
‘At the first festival, people had to use the toilet in my house, then the following year we invested in a single portable loo. Since then, the number has grown and this year we’ve got 39!’
To celebrate the new portable loo record, the LeeFest team are launching ‘VIPee' - a charity auction with a twist! Punters will have the chance to bid for four festival tickets with all proceeds going straight to the London-based charity, Kids Company.
As a reward, the winning bidder will be crowned the ‘VIPee’ of LeeFest 2011 and given the key to their very own red carpeted and treat-filled portable loo for the weekend to share with their chosen few! Any winning bidders who already bought LeeFest tickets will have their original ticket money refunded.
Craig Bennett, marketing manager at ID&C says 'LeeFest is a relatively tiny festival but with huge ambition, I think it's amazing how they've managed to maintain a boutique-style atmosphere despite growing in size each year. Their innovation and creative flair is something we hold in high regard at ID&C. Only someone as crazy as Lee (Denny) could think to auction a swanky festival portable loo - we simply had to get involved! What's more, it's all for a great cause.'
The auction is live until Monday 1st August at 6pm. BID HERE!
