A DAY FOR SAVING LIVES

After the great success of our last Royal Albert Hall “Reaching Out” event, at which Buckingham Palace took two hospitality boxes, we've decided to do it again.

At this years event we will be featuring, as usual, our famous 3,000 Gospel voices at “Football Reaching Out For Africa ” (FROFA) at the Royal Albert Hall on 23 rd September 2007 . The event helps us create AIDS awareness among young people and also raises funds for our health clinic projects in Africa . This event will be produced by Major Sir Michael Parker KCVO CBE who was the brains behind HM The Queen's Golden Jubilee Celebrations. This is a wonderful fun event with international stars of TV, Stage/Screen and Football it is always a very enjoyable experience and for a very worthy cause.
