Simon Le Bon, frontman of British band Duran Duran, is setting sail with the Tall Ships Youth Trust.
The Trust aims to empower marginalised young people in fulfilling their utmost potential through experiences at sea. As a keen sailor, Simon Le Bon is starting the partnership with a voyage with young people on one of the Trust’s Challenger Yachts.
On the launch of the initiative, Simon said: “It was an easy choice for me to support a charity that helps some of the UK’s most disadvantaged youngsters experience the joy and camaraderie of what it is like to sail at sea whilst also helping them with key life skills. I hope my work with the Tall Ships Youth Trust creates the opportunity for individuals to undertake even more adventures, opening up valuable chances to learn life skills and set them on a good path in life.”
