    Story

    Mental Health issues touch every one of us. It certainly effects me, many of my friends, family and close associates.

    This project is my small way of raising awareness and funds for an amazing charity who undertake all kinds of fantastic work for sufferers of mental health issues, carers and their families.

    I hope this modest £1000 (or more if I possibly can) crowdfunding campaign will help pay for the expenses related to curating a punk compilation album which, when sold along with related merchandise, should raise more than £4000 for Mind.

    The £1000+ raised from this crowdfunding campaign will be used to pay for mastering, duplication, marketing material, merchandise, postage, the domain name and other related costs. All of which I will publish for total transparency.

    400 hundred CD’s will be produced featuring established and grass routes acts. These will be sold from special counter display units in select independent record stores nation-wide as well as from the artist themselves. Proceeds will be sent direct to Mind. Legendary label Cherry Red Records are kindly arranging the downloads and streaming.

    Album line up:
    Stiff Little Fingers / Angelic Upstarts / The Defects / Subculture / 5 Go Mad / Apple Shift Seven / Wreck-Age / Wake The City / Knock Off / Born To Destruct / Jonny And The Mental Breakdowns / RT-Zed / The Schamakazi Pilot / Hazard / UK Vomit / Spring Park

    There will be a launch party / all-dayer event held at The Bear in Northampton on June 17th, featuring contributing acts.

    I hope, should this release prove a success, to produce further volumes on an annual basis.

    I really do hope you can help me achieve my goal.

    Thank you so much for reading this.

      Hi All. Id just like to update you all on where we are at. Ive had Tee shirts, stickers and badges printed all of which are flying out of the door. Also im taking pre-Orders for the CD. So far we have raised £560, in just a few days and we havn't even started to promote the launch properly yet. Tonight I will be at The Roadmender in Northampton, getting a Marshall Amp signed by Stiff Little fingers which has been pre-loaded with Jakes guitar tone. This will be up for auction Ebay tomorrow. Its all going very well. Thank you!!!!!

      We've just a few days left until the campaign runs out, so I'm desperate for a few last donations to get that total up. Im hoping there will be enough to get a handful t shirts made up to sell. With your help we can make a small difference. Thank you for your support. it so very much appreciated.

      TARGET HIT! A massive thanks you to all who contributed. There are still 10 days to go until time runs out and the funds are transferred. So please keep contributing. We could do with making up a handful of t shirts to sell so every penny helps. Thanks again.

      Thanks to all that have donated so far. Just £90 to go. I had a great meeting with Matt at Northampton and District Mind last night. So pleased to have their backing and to have met some of the team there doing such great work. Heres the flyer I've designed. Once we get over the target, the monies can be released and used to print them. Thank you all for your kind support.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
