This evening is an opportunity to celebrate his impact and express gratitude to Cochrane. He will be honoured by World Vision for his contribution to the humanitarian sector, and there will be a premier screening of 25 Years on The Highway, a documentary on Cochrane's humanitarian work. This will be followed by a performance of Cochrane's songs.
