Charity helped by Bob Marley’s family
The famous reggae singer’s family will be supporting a charity in Bideford.
A BIDEFORD charity will be getting some added support this year from none other than Bob Marley’s family.
Wings South West has been chosen as one of the first two UK charities to be supported by 1Love.org, the charity set up by the Marley family.
James Lewis, programme manager of Wings South West, said: “Our new digital music project, using funding from 1Love.org, will give underprivileged young people in the Bideford area a unique opportunity to be part of something truly creative.
Helping attract those who are usually very hard to reach, the project aims to empower participants, giving them something to engage with, feel passionate about and help them make change in their lives.”

Working with projects in the UK and across the world, we aspire to create a more peaceful and hopeful future.”
