Led Zeppelin's rock guitar legend, Jimmy Page jammed with Epsom College pupils in a concert for the street children of Brazil raising £6500 for Jimmy's charity "Task Brazil".

Brought up in Epsom, Jimmy returned to his roots to spend the afternoon with aspiring young musicians in a guitar workshop before rehearsing with one of the school bands. The evening kicked off with a question and answer session about his revered career before a personalized box set of Led Zeppelin's work was auctioned for £1000. After a few performances from younger members of Epsom College, Jimmy took to the stage to the delight of the audience.

As trustees of the Task Brazil charity, Mr and Mrs Page have a vision to ensure the health and future of Rio's homeless youngsters. Three Epsom College pupils have already been to "Casa Jimmy" in Rio to work with the children and more hope to follow in the summer. Jimmy's enthusiasm has inspired pupils to aim for this year's target of £30,000 to buy a farm outside Rio to help children rehabilitate from the traumas they've suffered on the streets.

Father Paul Thompson, Senior Chaplain at Epsom College said: "Jimmy commented that he was impressed with the level of music and the professionalism of the young musicians at Epsom College. He very much enjoyed playing alongside the pupils and staff at the school on this unique evening. He is a lovely, generous and kind-hearted man who has a great passion not only for his music but also for his charity Task Brazil. This all came across to the audience who were bowled over by his performance."
