Cedarwood Festival confirm MAF UK as Gold sponsors for 2019

12th March, 2019

Cedarwood Festival is excited to announce that Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) will be the lead sponsor for their first ever event, launching in July 2019. The festival aims to bring people and churches of all ages and denominations across the North of England together for worship, prayer and community on the Lambton Estate in Chester-le-Street, 5-7th July 2019. MAF’s vision and values are well aligned with those of the festival – social justice, evangelism and church unity – and we believe our new partnership will deliver an exciting and enjoyable event for all.

MAF is the world’s largest humanitarian airline, bringing help, hope and healing to those in greatest need. The charity has tackled the problem of poverty in isolation for over 70 years, extending a lifeline to remote communities in 27 countries across the developing world. This is largely due to the belief that nothing should stop people from receiving the love of God and the essentials of life. They operate in the most isolated corners of the world; flying more than 2,000 relief agencies and mission organisations to bring medical care, emergency relief, long-term development and Christian hope to thousands of communities. Every four minutes an MAF plane is taking off or landing somewhere in the world to help eliminate the barriers to physical and spiritual transformation.

Speaking on behalf of Cedarwood Festival, Event Director, David Stretton-Downes, said:

“We are thrilled to welcome MAF UK to be lead sponsors of the event in 2019 and hope this is the beginning of a long-standing relationship as MAF seeks to share its vision and life-changing work with new and established supporters and partners in the North of England.”


Speaking on behalf of MAF UK, Marketing and Acquisition Manager, Lucie Vass added:

‘’MAF is very excited to be partnering with Cedarwood Festival for their first year and encouraged to be part of a new Christian festival in the North of England. MAF is passionate about delivering opportunities for sharing the gospel and we partner with those with a similar ethos in the UK and worldwide. We are very pleased to be adding this pioneering event to our list of partners and are excited to be part of delivering a fantastic interactive festival experience for all.’’
