Brian Wilson backs the Graham Wylie Foundation…

Legendary star backs charity committed to supporting North East youngsters

Beach Boy legend Brian Wilson is the latest in a line-up of stars to back a charity committed to supporting North East youngsters.
 
The performer joined a line-up of music heavyweights, such as Manic Street Preachers and The Libertines, for the Live From Times Square series of concerts in Newcastle in July and August. The singer has voiced his support for the event’s official charity partner, the Graham Wylie Foundation, which raised £5,225 from guest list donations and bucket donations at the concert.
 
The charity’s Rock n Raise initiative is raising funds, through music events, for a new music therapy centre at the former matron’s lodge at Newcastle’s Fleming Hospital, to help young people and teenagers from across the region.

“I am proud to support Rock n Raise – ‘making every note count’, bringing life transforming music therapy to the children and young people of the North East, Love and mercy.”

The charity is one of just a handful worldwide to give 100 per cent of its donations directly to good causes, with Mr Wylie meeting all administration and staff costs himself.
 
The Sage founder said: “All the stars taking part in Live From Times Square gave us their blessing to bring charity buckets along to the shows and we are very grateful, not only to them but also to the thousands of festival goers who gave us such a great reception and donated so generously.”
