Bob Geldof handed honorary university degree
Posted July 24, 2010on:
Bob Geldof has been presented with an honorary university degree for his contribution to culture.
The former Boomtown Rats star donned a traditional cap and gown when officials at the University of Kent in Canterbury gave him the Master of Arts accolade.
And Geldof was pleased to accept the degree.
“It”s great to also receive recognition from UCA for the creative work that I”ve been doing for the past 35 years. I live up the road, so to be recognized by a local university, in the region that I love, adds even greater significance for me. I wouldn”t have accepted this award if it didn”t mean anything to me,” the Daily Star quoted the Live Aid organizer as saying.
