A ROCK legend helped to open a new centre for adults with learning difficulties in Stanmore yesterday.

Roger Daltrey, lead singer with The Who, was the star guest at the launch of the RD Crusaders Workhub at charity Norwood's shop in The Broadway.

The centre will offer training for adults with learning difficulties to help them find a job.

It has been funded by a concert held in May 2008 by the RD Crusaders, a band created by Norwood president and media mogul Richard Desmond and including Mr Daltrey.

At the opening, Mr Desmond said: “Thanks to the help of the RD Crusaders and Norwood’s dedicated trustees and staff, the RD Crusaders WorkHub will support our service users to become part of the workforce, earn money, be stimulated, and be a valued part of society.”
