The Caldecott Foundation is to host a live music and entertainment show to raise money for its work providing care, education and therapy for children who have been victims of cruelty or neglect. Kids 4 Kids is being staged by some of the charity's beneficiaries at Ashford International Hotel in Kent and will be supported by other local acts.

The event, which takes place on 6 February, is a joint venture with Kent Works, a Kent County Council service for young people. Proceeds from the show will also be split with Surin Schools, a charity that builds schools in developing countries. Tickets cost £25.
