The third anti-knife crime music event organised by the two Slough charities, will kick off at 7pm on Saturday 31st March on the second floor of Slough Library. The acts performing span from Rock to R’n’B and back again. Despite the Library’s rule of silence, it is thought to be one of the best music venues in the area because of the quality of the acoustics that the shelves of books provide.0 Telephone- 01753 512156 Email- office@swipemusic.com
  16. 16. Email to Swipe Music0 Dear Swipe music My name is Charlie MacArthur and I am a media student at Henley College and I am creating a social action video to raise awareness of the issue of knife crime in the local area. I have spent a lot of time researching many different charities and organisations and yours really stood out to me , it brings young people together through a common interest and uses that as a brilliant tool to get across a really important message. I have been gathering footage of interviews with young people trying to find out how they feel about the issue and the older generations to find out where they stand on the whole thing , but I feel that its very important to get in contact with somebody really trying to address this issue and wondered if anybody in your organisation could spare a short amount of time for an interview. Regards Charlie MacArthur
