Rod Stewart has been a busy man of late, releasing his solo studio album The Tears of Hercules and reuniting with Kenney Jones and Ronnie Wood to record brand new Faces material.

But he's still found the time to support some good causes, and was in attendance at a Football for Change charity event on Saturday night (November 13) to help raise money for underprivileged children.

And while Sir Rod can't move for photographers when he's out and about with his wife Penny Lancaster, he usually keeps his children away from the flashbulbs.

He made a rare exception at the inaugural gala dinner for the charity at Titanic Hotel in Liverpool.

The singer posed for a photo with Alastair, 15, and Aiden, 10, who were both wearing snazzy suits for the occasion – though unlike their dad's, their jackets weren't leopard print.

And he shared the picture with his fans, posting it to Instagram with the caption: "Thank you @ftblforchange for an inspirational evening raising money for underprivileged children👏. And another thank you too two hero’s @domcalvertlewin @23_carra."

Egged on by Aiden, Rod gave attendees an impromptu performance of 'Have I Told You Lately', The Mirror reports.

Earlier, Rod took part in a Q&A hosted by former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher and Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin, hosted by Russell Howard.

Football For Change was launched earlier this year by Carragher, together with current Anfield favourite Trent Alexander-Arnold and Wolves captain Conor Coady.
