Sir Bob Geldof

The Fed swears by Geldof

April 18, 2008

Sir Bob Geldof used his legendary fundraising kills to profitable effect for The Fed — Manchester Jewry’s leading social-care charity — last Thursday.

The humanitarian champion and Live Aid front man was guest speaker at The Fed’s dinner at the Sheridan Suite, Eastlands, drawing a sell-out crowd of over 600, including a number of new Fed supporters.

Speaking without notes, Sir Bob entertained his audience with a 45-minute address containing only a small number of his trademark expletives.
