Freedom from Torture Charity Show / December 2012

By on Friday, 9th November 2012 at 5:00 pm

Every year over 2,000 men, women and children are referred to UK nonprofit Freedom from Torture. These people have suffered unimaginable cruelty and horrific abuses of their human rights.?? Whether it be from systematic torture or abuse for their nationality, religious beliefs, sexual preferences or nothing at all, Freedom from Torture supports these survivors of torture and organised violence by helping them recover from their trauma and assisting them as they piece their lives back to together. This nonprofit offers services at five treatment centres around the UK and provides specialist help to these survivors that they desperately need. These needs go beyond the scope of any one doctor, lawyer, psychologist, or care professional, and it takes a concerted, coordinated and specialist team effort, often lasting years, to help them rebuild their lives.??

An exclusive night of music has been organised in support of survivors of torture. As the climax of a series of concerts the charity has planned in London and Manchester around International Human Rights Day on the 10th of December, Freedom from Torture will present an evening in London with Bombay Bicycle Club, supported by Trophy Wife and Dan Croll.

It’s a charity that all the bands involved feel strongly about supporting. Jack Steadman of Bombay Bicycle Club lead singer has said of their involvement: “We are really pleased to be part of this festival to support victims of torture and raise awareness of Freedom from Torture’s incredible work.” Kit Monteith, drummer of Oxford band Trophy Wife, said: “We’re looking forward to playing this gig at Koko with Bombay Bicycle Club for Freedom from Torture. We are extremely proud to support the charity and their work providing survivors of torture with the specialist help they so desperately need.”

The event will take place on Saturday the 22nd of December at London’s Koko. The show is 16+ and tickets are £20 each. Presale tickets can be purchased now from Gigantic. The general sale begins on Monday from the Freedom from Torture Web site. We also encourage to visit the main Freedom from Torture Web site for information on the other benefit gigs taking place throughout December.
