Annie Lennox is to headline a Zimbabwean charity event tonight.
On February 8th, Prince Charles and Thokozani Khupe – representing Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai – will preside over the first annual charity gala for the A to Z Trust.
They will be joined by an international audience of the most senior individuals in philanthropy and business who are galvanized to raise money for a number of important projects in Zimbabwe including the reconstruction of Zimbabwe’s historic National Gallery and Library in Harare.
The event is expressly non-political. The generosity of the donors will make it possible for all Zimbabweans to benefit from the enhanced facilities of a revitalised gallery and a modern library as well as a number of smaller community based initiatives with the specific aim of creating focal points for education, health, art and culture in the lives of the population. The buildings will include state of the art technology and allow for the re-training of an enterprising people as they prepare to embrace their future.
The A to Z Trust is a Scottish registered charity with the aims and objectives: prevention/relief of poverty, advancement of education, advancement of health and relief of those in need due to age, ill-health, disability or financial hardship.
To celebrate the charm of the culture of Zimbabwe the select group of 200 international guests will gather at one of London’s most prestigious venues – Claridge’s Hotel – for a dinner with entertainment headlined by Annie Lennox.
