Tramlines donates free tickets to Roundabout

Some of the young people helped by Roundabout have been given the chance to attend Sheffield’s biggest annual music festival, courtesy of Tramlines and local ticketing company Tickets For Good.

The ticket sales site with a difference, Tickets For Good’s mission is to increase access to events, making them available to those who may have not yet have had the opportunity.  The organisation is working with organisers of Tramlines festival to donate four daytime tickets to Roundabout, to be used by young people the charity supports, to attend the music festival as part of their Access Program.

The organisation’s founder, Steve Rimmer, says: “I have been a supporter of Roundabout and their work for many years, and can see the difference they make to vulnerable young people in our city. By working with the event organisers to support young people to go and enjoy Tramlines, we are creating an opportunity to take part in an event they probably wouldn’t otherwise be able to attend. We hope they’ll remember the experience for years to come, and feel valued as individuals.”

Clare Collingworth, Fundraising and Communications Manager at Roundabout, says: “We are incredibly grateful to Tramlines and Tickets For Good for kindly providing us with these tickets. At Roundabout, we encourage our young people to get involved with events within their communities and to develop skills they need not only to help them become independent, but also to help them build confidence. Having the opportunity to go to such a well-known event in Sheffield will be something very few of them, if any, will have experienced before.”

Tramlines will be taking place in Sheffield from Friday 21st – Sunday 23rd July. Tickets are still available and can be purchased through Tickets For Good’s website.
