BOYZONE singer Keith Duffy took time out to launch the Irish Wheelchair Association's national fundraising campaign.

The father of two and his fellow band members are going back on the road this month as part of their 20th anniversary.

Yesterday, Duffy posed alongside Laoise Cronin (9), from North Cork, as the 'Angels' campaign was launched in the Gibson Hotel in Dublin.

The Irish Wheelchair Foundation was founded in 1960 by a small group of wheelchair users who aimed to improve the lives of people with physical disabilities in Ireland. Today there are 20,000 members.

Angels will be sold by volunteers on the streets on November 7 and 8 and people can also donate by texting DONATE to 57802. Each text costs €2 with a minimum of €1.40 going to the IWA.
