Anti Riots charity searching for artists to help spread the phrase ‘No Postcodes’

uk riots

An important anti riots campaign that is staging an event in the midlands later this month is looking for artists to simply record five seconds of them uttering the words ‘NO POSTCODES’ as part of their campaign for positivity and role models for young people. Lee O’Hanlon(formerly worked with stereophonics/dogs die in hot cars) is now involved in this very worthwhile anti riots charity here he is explaining what exactly he needs:

“All I need is for established artists to give 5 seconds of their time to do the same as other multi platinum selling music artists, television presenters and Premiership footballers are doing. They are saying just two words, “No Postcodes”, to camera for us to help disadvantaged youngsters in the West Midlands in their plight to stop gang culture in response to the August riots.

Some of these young people are staging an anti-gang culture event later this month (27th October) called No Postcodes as a response to the August riots and gang culture. The event will incorporate music, dance and arts. Bromford support disadvantaged young people and others in the region to help them improve their quality of life. All we are hoping to do is put together a short video for YouTube to promote the event. It won’t contain anything except the various celebrities saying the phrase “No Postcodes.”

This is an amazing opportunity for kids to see positive actions from their peer groups and the celebrities they know so well. We are looking to turn this around by end of play middle next week if at all possible. I’m happy to pop along to film this or you can provide us with it if that is preferable. It can even be just shot on an iPhone as it is just for viral and as I say will only take 5 seconds.”So if you are interested reply below or email Lee on [email protected] or myself on [email protected]
