Students from a Northampton school have devised, produced and delivered an evening of music in support of a local charity which aims to reduce violence.
The students attend Duston School and as part of their post 16 studies organised the charity concert which was held at St Crispins Social Club, Duston, at the end of June.
The event was held in support of Always a Chance, a local charity set-up following the tragic loss of James Cooper and James Kouzaris, who were killed in Florida in 2011.
Northamptonshire Police is working in conjunction with Always a Chance as it tackles its top priority of violence.
Sergeant Bob French, attended the event. He said: “The evening was a great success, with young people from the local community displaying their exceptional musical talents for such a worthy cause.
“Always a Chance represents such an important message, focussing on young people in an attempt to turn them away from violent crime through education and experience. I hope this event will be the first of many and will encourage other young people to become involved."
