Bodyrockers get involved with charity campaign

A Londonderry-based charity's latest fundraising campaign for the developing world will also give local schoolchildren the chance to see one of the UK's top selling bands.

Children in Crossfire, who support locally driven initiatives in some of the world's poorest countries, have enlisted the support of Bodyrockers - famed for the hit single 'I like the way you move' - for the 'I Have A Dream Campaign'.

The campaign, launched to coincide with the charity's 10th anniversary, aims to encourage schoolchildren here to raise funds for education programmes in developing countries including Brazil, Ghana and Mozambique by inviting the top 10 fundraising classes from across Ireland to an exclusive Bodyrockers gig which will be held in the city of Belfast next year.

Frank Diamond of Children in Crossfire appealed to school pupils to get behind the campaign.

"With your support by fundraising for the 'I Have A Dream Campaign', you can help turn this dream into reality, as well as having a dream come true with a chart topping rock band playing a free gig especially for you.

"By creating opportunities such as a decent standard of education, many children around the world can break free from the cycle of poverty and realise their dreams."

Schools interested in participating in the 'I Have A Dream Campaign' are asked to contact Children in Crossfire at (028) 7126 9898.
