The Vamps pose for a pic before some games while visiting the Fairfax Secondary School for Sport Relief 2016 in Birmingham, England earlier this week.
The guys — Connor Ball, Brad Simpson, James McVey and Tristan Evans — stepped out for the Try-A-Thon fundraising event to bring awareness to the upcoming Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games on March 18th-20th.
The ‘Action 4 Bullying’ project runs after-school projects twice weekly to help support young victims of bullying. As part of their visit, the band was asked a series of questions about the project and their own experiences with bullying.
“We’ve all experienced bullying at some point so knowing that projects like Action 4 Bullying which is haven aside from school, where you can speak with people in the same situation is so reassuring,” Brad shared at the event. “Seeing it first-hand is really nice and it’s obvious how much of an impact Action 4 Bullying has on the kids. As for advice, I would say you are going to be okay; it will stop, you’ll grow up and get your life together and it will all be fine.”
James added, “Sport Relief is just such a beneficial cause, why wouldn’t you want to get involved?! Taking part in the Games or even just fundraising is great sense of achievement and you can keep fit and healthy while you do it. Supporting Sport Relief means kids like the ones at Action 4 Bullying can get the support they need; they can make friends and grow their confidence.”
