    Coldplay's £1m will fund new charity centre in Camden

    coldplay2008a.jpgPeople who enjoy living in areas which focus on community and charity work may want to look at flats to rent in Camden, after the area has received backing from Coldplay.


    As we reported recently, Coldplay have donated £1million to the South London charity Kids Company, which provides practical and emotional support to children who come from deprived families in the city.


    The band's donation will help fund the opening of a new centre in Camden, a place where individuals searching for flats to rent in Camden might want to get involved with through volunteer work. A spokeswoman for Kids Company said: "Coldplay were inspired by the work they saw so decided to make this donation."

    Camden Council recently announced that it has joined with the London 2012 Organising Committee to give residents the chance to choose the landmark which best showcases the borough. Sites proposed include the Roundhouse, the British Museum, Camden Market and St Pancras Station, attractions which could highlight the advantages of renting in the borough.


    Kids Company, founded by Camila Batmanghelidjh, provides emotional and practical support to children from deprived families in the capital. Coldplay will help fund the opening of a new centre in Camden, plus they have offered to give free music lessons to the kids. Coldplay have, however, been trying to downplay their donation and didn't inform the press about their kind-hearted gesture or make any mention of it on their official website.
