CARE International are a humanitarian charity organization that is one of the world's top three aid agencies, fighting poverty and injustice in over 70 countries around the world and helping 65 million people each year to find routes out of poverty. They are currently involved in the East Africa food crisis, the Indonesia earthquake and typhoon appeals and the effect of conflicts in Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

They need your help so buy a ticket and watch the big names perform for a big cause and, now that Speech Debelle has the Mercury under her arm, there will be extra 'pull' for this gig. Tickets are still available at £30 + booking fee.
