Clint Boon Kicks Off Manchester Music Amnesty


Clint Boon helped to kick off Forever Manchester’s Music Amnesty this week with a donation of pre-loved (and now unwanted) CDs.

Clint's donation will be added to the collection of surrendered CDs, DVDs and computer games to raise money for local communities in Greater Manchester.

The Manchester Music Amnesty is a new fundraising initiative from Forever Manchester where local people donate their unwanted entertainment, which is exchanged for hard cash and put back into communities.

Clint, keyboard player with the Inspiral Carpets and Xfm DJ, was quick to support the Amnesty with a donation of CDs including The RnB Yearbook, Jack Johnson and Chris Rea, commenting, “Don’t think of it as getting rid of rubbish, but more like finding new homes for music you’ve moved on from.”

Forever Manchester’s chief executive, Nick Massey, added, “Manchester is all about the music. Some of the best bands in history are from our city and its mighty boroughs. And us Mancs are all too cool for school – you’d never find a dodgy CD on our shelves, right?”

If there are one too many guilty pleasures on your shelf, Forever Manchester is here to help. We are providing special Music Amnesty collection boxes for businesses and individuals who think they can help, or you can drop off your unwanted items at public drop off points which include The Hard Rock Café, The Ducie Bridge Pub, The Hive, Park Inn, MANCH235TER and the Forever Manchester offices at 8 Hewitt Street, Manchester.

We receive a minimum of 50p per item collected, which, with the whole city on board, will go a long way towards helping local people make positive change to the neighbourhoods in which they live.
