Northampton’s finest party people will be hosted another one of their daytime bashes this weekend in aid of the Always a Chance charity, set up in memory of murdered British tourist, James Kouzaris. The charity has been set up to help try and stop people becoming involved in a life of violent crime before it is too late.
Mr Kouzaris, from Northampton, was murdered whilst on holiday with his friend James Cooper in Florida last April, making front page headlines across the globe. The tragic circumstances surrounding the murders was particularly felt in Northampton, where James was a popular face on the social scene.
The last bash hosted by Gamaluka in April 2011 saw more than 300 attend, and helped raise a fantastic £1,800 for the Macmillan Trust. This time around, the local Northampton lads who organise the party felt it was only right to raise funds to support the Always a Chance charity after what happened on that fateful night in Florida last April.
Gamaluku promoter and DJ, Justin Vanezi, said –
James was known to us through living in Kingsthorpe, and was a close friend at school to my brother. The charity has been set up to help young people stay clear of violent crime and give them a chance in life so this is never the path they take. We fully support this cause and want to do everything we can to raise money for this charity in memory of James, but also for the family and hundreds of other friends who have lost such an amazing person in their lives.
The event takes place at Fever Nightclub in Northampton between 2-10pm on Sunday 28th August 2011, with tickets just £5, and £7 on the door. If you are in the area, why not pop in and show your support, there’s a great selection of DJ’s playing all the latest house sounds from both home and abroad, plus there’s also a free BBQ!
