    Story

    WE AIM TO HELP THESE CHILDREN

    Deepshika school is in a small village near Banapa Nepal. It is shacks that are falling down and very dangerous. 135 children attend these shacks everyday and they call it their school. We aim to take down these shacks and give these children a brick built school which will be safer and give them a chance of a better life. These children deserve a future, and education will give them a chance they deserve to lead a normal life.

    EVERY PENNY COLLECTED GOES TO THE SCHOOL

    We are so committed to helping these children that we flew across the world to see the school for ourselves. We viewed the plans and worked out how much funds are required in achieving the build. The confirmed cost to build the school is £25,000. The bricks are already in production and we made some bricks while we were there. We can guarantee that every penny goes towards the school as we have seen it for ourselves. It was quite a shocking experience to see how these children are trying to learn in such hideous conditions. These children need your help NOW. Please help.

    OUR COMMITMENT

    Our commitment is to raise these funds however we can. we are holding RACE NIGHTS hoping to raise a few hundred pounds towards our campaign. We have also recorded a song for the WORLD CUP 2018 in hope the sales will contribute to the fund. Our trip to Nepal was paid for by us so we could see the school and confirm the amount required to build the school. The amount required is £25,000. Any money raised over our campaign will be given to Charitys also needing our help. If you would like to raise a sponsor event to raise money with us please contact us on mail@thelockerz.co.uk

    OUR VISIT TO NEPAL

    When we visited Nepal we visited many schools including DeepShika. We joined in the making of the bricks for the school and also took lessons for the children. Our most heart breaking day was when we visited Deepshika and gave all the children in the school a new pencil. It was probably the greatest gift they have ever received.

    THE MAKING OF THE SONG

    CLICK HERE AND PLAY

    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 Recording 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 The Locketts Pre-Release video

    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.
