THE founder of Ipswich homeless charity The Gate - One Chance has secured the services of The X Factor Australia star Adil Memon for a fundraising concert to be held in December.

Mary Hurst started her charity this year with the dream of purchasing a house which could be used as a homeless shelter.

In recent months she has also been collecting leftover food from a bakery and distributing it to struggling families.

She said she was hoping for a big crowd to support the fundraiser at the West Moreton Anglican College on December 8.

"There are a lot of Ipswich people who are struggling but are too embarrassed to ask for help," Ms Hurst said.

Ipswich guitarist/singer Adil Memon has been busy playing club gigs, but said he jumped at the chance to help the charity.

"I love doing charity work - it's something I like to be actively involved in," he said.

Adil, supported by Josh Morrison and The Mystery Crew, will perform at the fundraising concert for The Gate - One Chance Charity for Homeless Youth on Saturday, December 8 from 2-4pm at West Moreton Anglican College.

Tickets are available at the NAB Ipswich branch at $35 each.
