The cream of UK Asian hip-hop and the regions hottest live bands are coming to Accrington to launch a brand new Initiative in the region with the support of East Lancs PCT. Metz & Trix, Surinder Rattan and L.H.One are all playing
in a free gig at the Accrington Town Hall ballroom on 29th Jan to mark the launch of the Hyndburn CALMzone, with a live gig days later at local venue
The Attic featuring India Mill, Hey Bulldog and The Citizen Band.
“We’re happy to support this charity and hope that our gig on Tuesday will send a message to the young men of Accrington that being silent isn’t being strong”, said Metz from Metz & Trix.
The CALMzone will be officially launched at 11.30 am on 29th January at a press conference at Dunkenhalgh Hotel on Blackburn Road. The charity CALM (The Campaign Against Living Miserably)was set in 2006 to support men aged 15-35 and was backed by local regeneration champion Anthony Wilson, who was a founding Trustee until his death last year.
CALM are establishing themselves in the area as a campaign for and on the behalf of local young men. Recently they’ve won the support of The Fratellis,
Sasha, Newton Faulkner and James Zabeila who all gave the campaign
exclusive music to use in their Christmas campaign. Funded by the East Lancs PCT, the charity will be promoting its message
and website to young men in Accrington and developing links with the lifestyle organisations and companies in the town over the next weeks and months, and will be rolling out its campaign to Pendle and Burnley before April. The project is part of E Lancs PCT work towards meeting the national target of reducing suicides by 20% by 2010. The suicide rate in the North West is consistently higher than that in England and Wales as a whole. The suicide rate in East Lancashire is consistently higher than for the rest of the North West. East Lancashire has approximately 60 deaths per year from suicide and undetermined injury, so a reduction of 20% by 2010 would result in 12 Miles Whittaker, Hyndburn CALM co-ordinator explains “There is so much pressure on young men today to be successful, wealthy and have the perfect life, yet so many lads feel unable to live up to this expectation. CALM is about giving young men someone to talk to when life gets tough, a way to get your head straight and get support.” The charity will encourage young men to seek help when they’re down or depressed, and will direct them in the first instance to their website, which will include local agencies who might be of help. From March 08 it plaans to run a helpline open 4 days a week in the evenings. This will be supported by a a web chat and texting service, with the assistance of Comic Relief, and will enable of young men from across the region to talk or type to one of CALM’s trained advisors and get information about other local groups and agencies Further information
