Scissor Sisters - Scissor Sisters Help Raise $730,000 For Diabetes Charity

Scissor Sisters stars Jake Shears and Babydaddy showed their generous side by playing an intimate set at a diabetes fundraiser.
The kind-hearted pop stars performed an acoustic set at the Art Antiques London Party in the Park on Tuesday (12Jun12), helping to raise $730,000 (£460,000) for diabetes charity Jdrf.
Shears says, "We were proud to attend this event to support Jdrf and help raise the profile of type 1 diabetes which is a condition that is close to our hearts as we have a dear friend whose young daughter has type 1. It was a pleasure to play at the event and we wish Jdrf every success in their research work to find the cure."
