I’ve just come back from Quebec, Canada and America, where I’ve been organising Oxfam’s presence at Coldplay’s concerts. We’ve been campaigning on the For All campaign, asking the crowd to sign up to the For All Pledge.

We had some great nights. Montreal was an amazing show; the crowd were in full voice all night. The Oxfam Quebec volunteers worked tirelessly, signing up an amazing 1,887 people. In Toronto there were two amazing shows, and thanks to the efforts of the awesome Oxfam Canada volunteering team, almost 3,000 people signed the For All pledge.

I’m so pleased we’re part of this tour. Sitting amongst the road cases, blogging backstage. Or talking to people on the concourse, before they take their seats. Coldplay may well be stopping by in a town near you on this tour. It’s a show worth waiting for. There’s no reason to wait to get involved with Oxfam’s work, you can take action by signing the Pledge. To find out the latest from Coldplay’s tour, follow my blog.
