New Motivation For a Pink Floyd Reunion

(Rock News Desk) After the furore surrounding the surprise reunion of Pink Floyd in London two weeks ago, drummer Nick Mason repeated his belief the remaining members could gather one more time probably for a charity event.

Now it's been revealed that an alternative school the band supported in the past will close at the end of term due to a lack of funding. Schoolhouse Education was the beneficiary of a 1000 donation after Floyd played a charity show at Wembley Stadium in 1972. The money helped establish the school, which works with truants who slip through the holes of the mainstream system.

Headteacher Lynda Smith tells the Times Educational Supplement: "We help 15 pupils aged between 14 and 16 who are unable, or unwilling, to attend school. They work really hard 98% go on to further education and it's an incredibly productive time for them." more on this story
