"I just felt like I should be helping out, rather than just sort of standing around. I’m very committed to working in Africa, yeah. I don’t work with Band Aid but I do work a lot with Oxfam. I think it would be nice if Band Aid could really open people’s minds to the actual vicinity of Africain context with Europe, as opposed to this kind ofdesperate pit, where everything is always going wrong and we can just from time to time, lavish them with a bit of our money, I think it’s got to be very long term…. I came cos I thought I’d be very sorry if I didn’t and I’ve really enjoyed making tea for everyone. But when I wake up tomorrow, I’ll still be involved with Africa. That’s what I’d like everyone here to wake up to tomorrow. Bob and Midge and all those involved with the Band Aid Trust are, but its not a walk in walk out thing."
