  • Robbie Williams

    Robbie talks about his persona on stage being geared around Freddie Mercury and why it is important to support the MPT.

    Since 1992, The Mercury Phoenix Trust has been raising millions to fight AIDS worldwide and thanks to advances in treatment, many are able to live longer with the disease, but there is still no cure. Around the world, mainly in countries stricken with poverty and lack of education, people are dying. The fight is not over yet.

    "All those close to Freddie, all those who loved him and indeed the wider circle of people who also loved him, which spread across the world, were determined to do something to help make sure that this happened less and less often to people and so the trust was founded to help with education and awareness.

  • Bono

    Bono reflects on the loss of Freddie “…taken from us all in 1991 – stolen from us actually. This larger than life, dynamic vocal genius – stolen from us…stolen by a little virus, HIV”. He goes on to say, “last year for the first time since AIDS appeared four decades ago more people were put on the treatment than contracted the virus.

    “The balance is slowly tipping in the right direction… dreams of a world free of AIDS are no longer just dreams.”

    “But…we have to keep up the pressure and one of the ways of keeping up the pressure is by donating to the Mercury Phoenix Trust.”
