A NURSE from Endmoor cleaned Glastonbury's toilets as part of a campaign lobbying for clean water to be part of the UK's international development budget. 

Nurse Jude Coleby said she was 'really excited' to join the WaterAid team for its 30th year at the UK's biggest festival in Worthy Farm, Somerset.

She said: "It was a challenge but also one of the best experiences of my life. I met friends for life which I will cherish forever." 

While more than 200,000 revellers enjoyed headline sets from Dua Lipa and Coldplay, Jude was sporting rubber gloves and armed with a mop.

She invited festival-goers to add their name to WaterAid's Vote Water petition, calling for the government to prioritise clean water internationally.

 "Today, nearly one in ten people around the world don't have clean water close to home while nearly one in five don't have a decent toilet of their own," she said.

"Everyone everywhere should have clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene and Glastonbury is a great opportunity to help raise awareness of a cause I care deeply about."

The toilets were long drop, which can be over 10 feet deep and are typically used in rural areas with no electricity or running water. 

She said that they 'weren't at all' disgusting. They were manned from 6am until midnight by a team of volunteers. According to the Glastonbury website, there are over 2,000 long drop seats across the site. 

She said: "Whether it's locating a water kiosk to get a drink or waiting to use a toilet, it's the ideal setting for people to start to understand what it might be like for the millions of people who don't have access to clean water or decent toilets." 

WaterAid has been a charity partner of Glastonbury since 1994, supporting water and sanitation services on site while also highlighting its work to help bring clean water and decent toilets to people living in poverty around the world. 

This year there were more than 700 WaterAid volunteers working the Water Bars and Kiosks, running the women's urinals, cleaning the toilets and handwashing stations and supporting the post-festival clean-up.
