Some of the UKares board members – including Craig R. Young – met with the legend Rod Stewart and his wife at the “A world at school” event.
The collaboration between Theirworld and Astley Clarke was celebrated in Los Angeles on June 2nd at a reception attended by a host of British and American celebrities backing the campaign to get every child into school.
Rod Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster, Rainn Wilson, Minnie Driver and Piers Morgan were among the guests who added the names to the 5.7 million people who have already signed the “Up For School” petition. It calls on governments to deliver on their promise of a quality education for every child by the end of 2015.
The reception took place at the LA residence of British Consul General Chris O’Connor. Guests saw an exhibition by photographer Simon Urwin, learned more about the work of Theirworld and its collaboration with Astley Clarke.
