It is the liberating power of the choir that led to the relationship
between Rock Choir and Refuge, the national domestic violence charity
for women and children. Rock Choir has dedicated our
track Something Inside So Strong directly to Refuge, and the
group will continue to use our music to highlight the incredible work
performed by the organisation each and every day.
Refuge offers a range of services which gives women and children
access to professional support whatever their situation. These services
National Domestic Violence Helpline
A network of refuges across the country
Independent legal advocacy
Culturally specific services
Prevention and education
Sandra Horley CBE, chief executive of Refuge says: “We were thrilled
when Rock Choir contacted Refuge to discuss Refuge benefiting from Rock
Choir’s track Something Inside So Strong.
The fit between the song and both Rock Choir and Refuge’s aims to make a
positive contribution to the lives of women makes the partnership a
brilliant fit. The money raised will play a vital role in supporting the
over 1,400 women and children Refuge works with each day to rebuild
their lives free from violence.
“But working with Rock Choir is not just about the funds being raised
from the single. It’s also about having the support of a fantastic
4,500 thousand strong group who, through the work we’re doing together,
will help us to raise the profile of domestic violence and the services
available. This is of huge importance to Refuge and its work.”
Refuge told Rock Choir, "Something Inside So Strong is your
anthem – and ours too. The lyrics in the song speak volumes for the
life-saving and life-changing services Refuge provides to over 1,600
women and children on any given day of the year – year in, year out.
There is no better tribute.
"Whatever you are able to do for Refuge your support will be hugely
appreciated. With your support we can keep our services open and
support even more women and children in the future."
