Annie Lennox will receive the British Red Cross' Services to Humanity Award, given each year to honour outstanding humanitarian work. Lennox’s efforts to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS through music, video and campaigning throughout her career has earned her this recognition.

On June 12, after Lennox receives the award, she will perform at The Grosvenor House Art & Antiques Fair Royal Charity Gala Evening, a fund raising event to benefit the Red Cross. A charity auction for victims of the Darfur crisis will also take place, with the goal of raising at least half a million pounds (approx $970,000).

Lennox’s regular performances benefit a variety of causes, such as the environment, sustainable organic farming, human health, disaster relief, fighting AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, human rights, poverty, homelessness and much more.

Maria Shammas, International Fundraising Chair for the British Red Cross, said, “Ms. Lennox’s ability to raise awareness through her music and to use her international profile for the benefit of others is an example to us all. We are delighted that Annie Lennox will be bestowed this honour.”
