Reasons for missing Volunteer Shifts, where reasonable efforts have been made to alert Festival staff as early as possible, will be assessed on a case by case basis in order for staff to decide whether the half refund will be due to the Volunteer Ticket holder. The Sustaina Ball Festival staff commit to fair and compassionate assessment of Volunteer Ticket holder circumstances.
