Nigel Clark, lead singer of nineties group ‘Dodgy’ famed for the hit single ‘Good Enough’, has led a night of live music and entertainment in Stratford with colleague Doug Armstrong, customers from the Stratford Link Project and local artists.
The evening of music and poetry – all provided for free - was the second run by the Stratford Link Project who work in association with Stratford District Council, Stratford Town Trust, Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner and Stratford CAB’s ‘Reach Out and Help Programme.’
Doug Armstrong said: “We have been involved with the project for 20 months and have carried out song writing workshops to help people connect and deal with some of their problems through writing and performing the music. We hope this helps to raise the project’s profile and help access further funding to carry on offering this to some of the most vulnerable people in the community.
John Wilde of Bromford’s link project said: “We are delighted that Nigel and Doug supported us with our event again this year and it was good to also welcome Stratford’s mayor, Tessa Bates. It was a great night.”
The Stratford Link Project it is a community-based initiative that provides services to some of the most vulnerable people in the community. The project operates from 14 Waterside in Stratford-upon-Avon for people to drop in on Tuesday and Thursday mornings 10 - 1pm to access advice and support.
