Rock royalty reigned and spirits soared at a private concert given by Bob Geldof and band on 27th September 2012. The event was held at the stunning North Cadbury Court in Somerset and marked the local launch of Key4Life.
The value of Key4Life was reinforced to guests when they heard first hand from two young people, Alex, an ex-serviceman, and Ryan, a former young offender, both of whom took part in a Key4Life introductory programme last year having fallen out with society. “It saved my life,” said Alex.
Funds raised from the launch event have been used to help run a pilot programme at Ashfield YOI in the autumn of 2012. Among the various auction lots and prizes, one of the hottest items on sale was an old harmonica belonging to, and donated by, Bob Geldof.
