...in Australia who have supported our work. It was a bittersweet moment in Sydney on Sunday night as we bid farewell to the Coldplay lads at their last concert in Australia on their Viva La Vida world tour.
Oxfam volunteers were again out and about at Acer Arena taking full advantage of the chance to talk to Coldplay fans about our Make Trade Fair and Close the Gap campaigns. Many Coldplay fans were eager to hear about Oxfam’s work, and the efforts of our volunteers in Sydney resulted in over 2500 sign-ups over the four Sydney shows. Wow, what an effort!
As we recover from the excitement of the shows we can now look back on the Australian tour. We have had a total of 220 volunteers across 4 states mixing amongst the crowds of 11 huge shows. Coldplay fans received thousands of stickers, postcards, leaflets and tattoos as the word about Fair Trade and Indigenous Health spread across the country. Overall in support of the Make Trade Fair and Close the Gap campaigns we managed to get over 10 000 sign ups. That is as epic in proportions as a Coldplay world tour!
