CWNN goes punk in new Joe Strummer Foundation campaign

This December, we are thrilled to announce that we've teamed up with The Joe Strummer Foundation for a new joint campaign to raise awareness and funds for the work both our organisations do to empower disadvantaged people through music. They're a really cool bunch who continue to follow punk visionary, Joe Strummer's, ethos: 'Without people, you're nothing.' Spot on.


Hanging out with the Joe Strummer team

So, speaking of people, a few weeks back, and with kind permission from the band themselves, our London choirs got together to rehearse and perform The Clash's punk classic 'Should I Stay or Should I Go' from scratch. You can see the results in the video below. It's awesome. Our members really loved it, and we are all extremely grateful to The Joe Strummer Foundation for giving us the opportunity to raise awareness of the work we do supporting people affected by homelessness and marginalisation, to a global audience.

So have a watch, share it amongst your chums and make a difference in 2017 - visit the campaign page & discover ways you can help! CLICK HERE.

Enjoy!

Huge thanks to Tim and everyone at BVU for their fabulous film making skills, to Sam for bringing the Punk to Peckham, to Dom for tickling the ivories, to Dan and all at St Giles for your venue, instruments and musical prowess, and also to The Pret Foundation Trust for feeding our members on shoot day. Delicious! We couldn't have done it without you all. High fives all round.
