Anne (11) of Swanwick's School raised £4000 for Band Aid. Irish musician Geldof (b 1954) founded the Band Aid charity in 1984 in order to raise money for the starving in Ethiopia by releasing a record. 'Do They Know It's Christmas?', performed by well-known musicians including David Bowie, Sting, and Boy George, became the Christmas number one and raised millions for famine relief.
