The Prince’s Trust Rock Gala 2010

12:01 PM Thursday 8/12/10 | |

Eric Clapton and Paolo Nutini, along with several additional U.K. rock legends and rising stars, are coming together for one special night this November to put on the Prince’s Trust Rock Gala 2010 to benefit young people in need.

Proceeds from the Prince’s Trust Rock Gala go towards the Prince’s Trust, which was founded in 1976 by The Prince of Wales.

The charity aims to help four key target groups among young people – the unemployed, underachievers in education, those leaving care, offenders and ex-offenders. With more than one million young people in the U.K. not in education, employment or training (accounting for around one in five young people in the U.K.), the Trust helps these young people through a number of opportunities including training, personal development, business start up support, mentoring and advice.

The first Prince’s Trust Rock Gala took place in 1982 featuring Madness, Joan Armatrading, Phil Collins, Kate Bush and Pete Townshend.

Additional rock galas were held throughout the ‘80s to help combat inflation, strikes and high unemployment following the U.K.’s recession.

“Our last performance at the Rock Gala had one aim … to raise money for youngsters struggling to find work after a recession. Unfortunately we find ourselves in the same situation twenty years on and I’m helping the best way I know how,” Prince’s Trust ambassador and Queen lead guitarist Brian May said.

“We are thrilled to have the support of ambassadors like Brian May and Eric Clapton,” said Martina Milburn, Chief Executive of the Prince’s Trust. “The money raised will allow us to make massive changes to the lives of thousands of young people during a very difficult time.”
