Reflecting on the past few months, we are filled with immense happiness and pride. Together with you, our dedicated volunteers, we have achieved so much. It is equally gratifying to see our efforts recognised beyond Poland’s borders.

The Orchestra: A Household Name


In an article for Anadolu Agency, Jo Harper highlights the phenomenon of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity (GOCC). He underscores the resilience and determination with which the organisation has supported Polish healthcare for over 30 years, despite facing numerous challenges. Harper notes that it is estimated one in five pieces of equipment in Polish hospitals has been provided by the GOCC Foundation.

Global Recognition of Our Volunteers


Our fantastic volunteers also caught the attention of foreign media. Each year, they energise their local communities in support of the GOCC’s goals. Media outlets in the Netherlands and Ireland (here & here) have praised the proactive spirit of everyone involved in the Orchestra’s activities.

Spotlight on Pol'and'Rock Festival


The World's Most Beautiful Festival, Pol'and'Rock Festival, consistently garners the most attention from international journalists. This event has been frequently listed among the largest music festivals in Europe and the world. Publications like Metro, Let's Roam, Ticket Fairy, Skiddle, and TheFestivals have all written about our festival.

A standout moment for the Foundation and our community was an article by Maeve Campbell in The Guardian. The article featured eight European festivals organised by non-profits with a higher purpose. We are thrilled that Pol'and'Rock Festival was recognised as one of these exceptional events. It’s a joy to know that, along with the Most Beautiful Audience in the World, we can create such a remarkable event.
