The former girlfriend of Marc Bolan has appealed for funds to help run a new school for orphans in Africa created in the late glam rocker's memory.
The musician's former partner, singer Gloria Jones, and their son, Rolan Bolan, have founded the Marc Bolan School of Music and Film in Makeni, Sierra Leone and hope to enrol 100 students at the facility.
But Jones is in need of financial aid to get the school up and running and is appealing for cash donors to pay for teachers' salaries and learning materials for the children.
She tells Britain's Independent newspaper, "We currently need assistance to build more classrooms in Makeni."
Jed Dmochowski, the frontman of a Bolan tribute band, is helping Jones with the school, and adds, "The children are getting to know more of Marc's music and will be playing his songs. But Gloria really wants them to be inspired by Marc's energy and vision and to develop their natural talent.
"The poverty is extreme and unless the children develop a sense of self they are vulnerable to people offering them guns and money to lure them in a different direction."
Bolan was killed in a car crash in London in 1977, just days before his 30th birthday.
