A star-studded line-up hit the stage in Oxfordshire, UK, on Saturday to raise money for Palestinian children.

The concert – which benefited the HOPING Foundation – saw performances by Tom Jones, Nick Cave (joined by Kate Moss on tambourine), and a reuniting of Pink Floyd legends David Gilmour and Roger Waters.

The Pink Floyd reunion was a highlight for many, and marked the first time the rockers have played together since the Live 8 concert in Hyde Park five years ago. And as a special treat for Floyd fans, the duo started their set with a rendition of Phil Specktor’s To Know Him Is To Love Him, a regular feature of Pink Floyd sound checks for many years that is rarely heard by the public.

The HOPING Foundation – Hope and Optimism for Palestinians in the Next Generation – aims to show Palestinian refugee children that their struggle to transform their lives is encouraged and supported by people in Britain and throughout the rest of the world. The Hoping Foundation provides grants to community projects working with children in Palestinian refugee camps.

More than £350,000 was raised for the charity at the event.
