Neil Finn played a special charity show in Queenstown, New Zealand, earlier this week.
The show – held at the Gibbston Valley Winery – raised money for So They Can, a charity which works together with communities and their governments in Kenya and Tanzania to educate and empower, so they can break the poverty cycle, realise their own potential and meet their own needs.
“It’s inspiring for us to see what has been achieved already by So They Can in Kenya,” says Neil, who is an ambassador for the charity. “They have made it their mission to attach themselves to a community in need and then really follow it through. We are hoping to form a personal connection with the school and these kids and help to spread the word.”
The event raised over $107,000 for the charity.
Other ambassadors include All Black Conrad Smith and singer Kimbra.
Finn’s band Crowded House are due to play a series of shows outside the Sydney Opera House later this month.
