Young people hitting right notes in aid of Safeline

Laura Kearns 27th Dec, 2016

YOUNG people who use the services of Safeline are hitting all the right notes to raise money.

Children in primary and secondary schools have access to Safeline Young People, which helps those struggling at home or school.

And to help raise money for the Warwick-based charity, the service users teamed up with songwriters Paul Edwards and Johnny Miller and singer Sarah Ribbands to write and record a song.

‘Go To Friend’ is about friends you can trust and features children from schools which use the charity, including North Leamington, Trinity and Campion.

Money raised through the song will go towards projects including sports and drama workshops and group discussions.

A spokesman from the charity said: “Safeline Young People work with vulnerable girls and boys from primary and secondary schools. We take a select group of students who may be struggling at home or at school to help them build valuable skills and work through any abuse they may be suffering at home, in relationships or at school, through one to one support from our professionals.

“We need people to help us promote ‘Go To Friend’ so that we can raise money to help fund more projects across the UK so please share with your friends and family and help us get this song the recognition it deserves.”

Downloads of the song cost 99p and are available from sites including iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.
