Bob Dylan donates Xmas dinner to UK homeless

 
November 13th 2009
 
Homeless charity Crisis is hoping to benefit from the release of Bob Dylan's new album, Christmas in the Heart, after the veteran folk singer announced his decision to donate all UK profits of the record to the organisation. Dylan had already arranged to pay for the cost of 15,000 meals for homeless people in Britain this Christmas, and his deal with Crisis will aim to continue that support after the festive season has ended. Leslie Morphy, chief executive of Crisis, said: "We are very grateful to Bob Dylan for his generous donation. The money will help provide thousands of hot meals to our guests including a traditional Christmas dinner". Christmas in the Heart includes re-workings of yuletide favourites like 'Winter Wonderland', and 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas', and music industry experts have tipped it for a surprise shot at Christmas number one. Dylan said: "That the problem of hunger is ultimately solvable means we must each do what we can to help feed those who are suffering and support efforts to find long-term solutions. I'm honoured to partner the World Food Programme and Crisis in their fight against hunger and homelessness".
