Weʼre raising £100,000 to Help Children in Nepal. We aim to build a new school to help to give the children a start in life that so many of us take for granted.
- Schools and education
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Despite numerous devastating earthquakes that have affected this country the children still carry on their days as before. Their faces of confusion remain, not knowing what tomorrow will bring. The amazing opportunity of a new school would make a difference (MAD) to their lives. We cannot change the world but we can give these children the chance of a better future. Please support us to make this happen.
Above are the shacks presently used as a school for the children. We aim to remove these shacks and build a school from bricks. The bricks will be made by a brick making machine that has already been funded by Shiva (a non-profitable charity) The Lockerz will be visiting Nepal on 13th FEB to meet all the children and make some bricks ourselves. Our trip has been funded by ourselves so we can understand the way these people survive. We will also get to do a lot of activities with the locals probably including Football. We are taking over with us some football kits that have kindly been donated by LPFC. Please view our website for updates of pictures and videos when we visit Nepal.
Our appeal is to also provide new furniture throughout the school. The brick school will also keep the children safer from unforeseen weather and falling debris. We also aim to have more space in the classrooms to reduce the crammed classrooms they have at present. This is a great cause and will definitely Make A Difference (MAD).

When we arrive in Nepal on Feb 13th the Lockerz are planning to make some bricks as above. We will experience how long it takes to build one brick in these basic conditions and how they stick together. The bricks are designed to have a metal rod through the centre to connect each block together. This process can be very labour intensive however it is probably the cheapest way of building bricks for buildings in Nepal.
Above some blocks already finished.
Our campaign will pay for all the materials and all the labour to build the school. It will also pay for all the labour to lay these heavy bricks.
OUR JOURNEY FOR THE CHARITY SONG
It all started 15 months ago at Honeywell Studios.... CJ had a melody concept in his head and it needed unlocking. With his creative team: Sound engineer Jason Honeywell and Musician/Artist Gemma Watkins, the team were able to co create and translate those ideas into the song you now know to be "They think its all over" that was later to be fully produced. The first recording was in Ireland at Windmill studios where we were kindly donated a day recording for free (Thank you Tony) Various artists had previously recorded here including U2 and it was an amazing experience for all of us. We had written the song several months before however it needed to be recorded to hear what it would sound like. This gave us a great starting platform for the song. From there we went to Real World Studios to record our second attempt at the song which was funded by ourselves. After a few alterations and the adding of MC MOTION the Lockerz was formed. Everyone has shown great commitment to make this song happen for this campaign. VIEW PRE-RELEASE SONG

WHY IT MEANS SO MUCH. All funds raised from our campaign will build a new school for many children and also provide them with new furniture. The build will be carried out by local trades in Nepal so that the money remains within the community of Nepal. All the proceeds from our WORLD CUP 2018 SONG released on APRIL 2ND will also go towards this great appeal and hopefully together we can all make a difference (MAD). The song has taken one year to put together and has been totally funded by ourselves. We are so proud to be helping those who need it.
Above picture is MC MOTION. We wanted to make the song modern and fun for everyone so we asked MC MOTION if he would rap a section within the song relating to a child's dream of one day playing in the World Cup. MC MOTION took our song to another dimension and brought a great vibe to the song. Well done MC MOTION and Thank you.
