Metallica Donate £40,000 To U.K. Homeless Charity

Metallica have donated £40,000 through their charitable organization All Within My Hands Foundation to a charity that supports homeless people in Leicester.

The iconic metal band performed two headline acts at the Download rock festival at Donington Park, Leicestershire, last weekend.

A portion of the ticket sales will go to Help the Homeless, a charity which helps rough sleepers in Leicester.

All Within My Hands said the donation would help “those most at risk,” while Help the Homeless said it would be a lifeline to some of the most vulnerable people in the city.

Help the Homeless founder Arif Voraji said, “I started following their foundation on social media a couple of years ago and flagging our work but that was it.”

“Then I got an email from them which said they were playing at Download, just down the road at Castle Donington, and they wanted to support local charities. It was amazing and I was a bit stunned,” he added. “It’s come at the perfect time as things were looking patchy. We’ve seen a massive drop in donations from the public and donations from corporations, but at the same time, we’ve seen an increase in demand.”
