Local Teenagers raise over £3,000 to help children in Darfur
Teenages Ciaran Doyle and Maxim Georgiou, both 14 years old and pupils at Seaford College, and members of The v8s band put on a fantastic gig in Slindon in October. It was a fantastic evening, with everyone, of all ages, up on their feet! Ciaran said “I decided to do something when I realised that children in Darfur don’t even know if they will get breakfast – and we have so much. Maxim and I decided we would put on our own show and see what we could achieve!” The V8s were joined by Home Feels Foreign and Station-47.
The £3,000 raised will help to provide a village in Darfur with a water pump that will provide water for up to 3,000 people with clean drinking water, irrigation for crops and sustenance for livestock. Literally lifesaving in Darfur.
The boys had the support of local businesses and Chichester Music Academy. Watch this space – there is a plan to take the show to London.
“It is really inspirations to see these kids using their time and talent for the benefit of children who have been forgotten by the world” said Patricia Parker MBE Founder of Kids for Kids.
