Annie Lennox is to perform a special concert next week to raise much needed funds for two charities.
The 3rd annual Raisa Gorbachev Foundation Gala will take place on Saturday, June 6. This year’s gala will be held in a Spiegeltent, in the grounds of Hampton Court with 350 guests. The aim is to raise much needed funds for two charities – The Raisa Gorbachev Foundation and Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The money donated through the Raisa Gorbachev Foundation – founded by former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev following the death of his wife Raisa from leukaemia in 1999 – gives hundreds of children suffering from cancer in Russia direct access to the best possible treatment. Marie Curie Nurses provide free nursing care to cancer patients and those with other terminal illnesses in their own homes and also run 10 hospices across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and two centres for palliative care research and the world-renowned Marie Curie Research Institute, which investigates the causes and treatments of cancer.
More information about the event will be available on the Raisa Gorbachev Foundation website
