The third of One Direction”s moving films made during their Red Nose Day visit to Africa will be shown on Saturday night.
In January Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan all visited Agbogbloshie township in the capital of Accra to see how Comic Relief”s funds are helping the poorest people in Ghana.
The film sees Louis and Niall visibly shocked at meeting Idris, 12, and Sulle, 15, who are forced to make a living by scraping by on a rubbish tip. The boys also heard how Idris and Sulle are unable to go to school and instead find wires they can burn to extract and sell metal from in order to survive.
On the back of their visit Harry, Niall, Louis, Zayn and Liam are trying to inspire their fans to raise cash for the campaign, and show their support for those they met in Ghana. The band have donated the clothes they wore in Africa to Comic Relief to sell on ebay as part of the band’s #1D4RND campaign.
Since their eye-opening trip the five-piece band have released Comic Relief”s official song, One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks), which raced to the number one spot in the UK”s official chart and 62 other countries.
One Direction will forgo any royalties due to them from the track and will not receive any payment in connection with the Red Nose Day single and record label Syco will donate 100% of its profits from the sale of each CD single and download to Comic Relief.
The film with be shown on BBC One”s Let”s Dance for Comic Relief.
