A promoter of charity events has been ordered by a court to pay back £2.8 million to the sponsor.  (Audience).

British born promoter Tory Hollingsworth was successfully sued by the Singapore Tourist Board which paid the money for a Listen Live charity concert in aid of disadvantaged children, and which failed to take place.

Hollingsworth still hopes to stage his event in some other part of the world before the end of 2009 but another Listen Live due to take place in June last year in Los Angeles also failed to take place due to “the US sponsorship market turning very weak”.
