Everyone involved with the making of Highrise, is truly passionate about spreading a positive message, as well as providing funding, mentoring and opportunities to the younger generations. Members have been directly affected by knife and gun crime; Dennis Alcapone’s stepson was shot dead in Limehouse, London this summer and Lynval Golding (The Specials/Pama Intl) almost lost his life in a very well documented knife attack.
The campaign’s aims are simple – to make our streets safer, better places through rebuilding a sense of community for everyone. All the charity’s chosen by Pama International in this campaign do amazing work, actively give youths opportunities, support and guidance on a daily basis. In addition to to the album’s release, Pama Intl will be taking this vital message on the road, performing a series of club shows, as well as matinee performances and workshops for under 18s throughout 2009.
