Teens join in ‘feed the world’ bid

Six months on from the worldwide pop extravaganza that was Live Aid - Bob Geldoff and Midge Ure’s bid to send aid to Africa was still going strong - as this group of Heanor Gate Science College pupils show.

The teens had clearly been busy donating goods to the cause launched by the Boomtown Rats and Ultravox frontmen the previous year.

And it appears the pupils were fully behind the bid to stamp out poverty in the continent as they sit on a real bundle of bags ready to be sent to Africa wit the words ‘love from Band Aid’.

Perhaps you can help name some of the young pupils here and you remember the sort of fundraising you were up to?
