It's been a full week since Glastonbury announced the cancellation of this summer's festival. The Eavis family were hoping to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic festival in 2020, but have had to put the party on hold until next year due to the current coronavirus crisis.

The sharp increase in COVID-19 cases across the country has resulted in NHS staff being overwhelmed, and many hospitals are running out of beds and supplies.

Glastonbury organisers have since decided to donate their supply of hand sanitiser, gloves, and face masks to the NHS.

Yesterday (24 March), organisers Michael and Emily Eavis welcomed Avon and Somerset Police to Worthy Farm to collect the supplies.

According to Somerset County Gazette, an Avon and Somerset Police spokesperson said, "On behalf of A&S Local Resilience Forum, we'd like to extend a huge thank you to Michael and Emily Eavis for providing frontline emergency service workers and NHS staff with thousands of litres of hand sanitiser, gloves and face masks due to be used at Glastonbury 2020."

Yesterday (24 March), the BBC confirmed details of its Glastonbury celebration programme that will air this summer.
