Waterloo Road star releases new song for PAPYRUS
Please help to raise awareness prior to release on 21 May
Talented young TV star is plugging away to prevent young suicide
New song due for release on 21 May
When Tom Milner acted a suicide attempt (as student Paul Langley in Waterloo Road Reunited) it made him acutely aware of what it may be like to be a desperate, suicidal young person. He realised that seeking help is vital if you feel alone in a dark place; that life is letting you down. Now he has come up with a novel way to help young people who may be thinking of suicide.
Tom turned to his talents as a singer/songwriter to send young people a message they would identify with. Keep Plugging Away is his new song, due for release on Monday 21 May 2012. It acknowledges the roller coaster ride of highs and lows that life for a young person is today - urging everyone to ‘keep on plugging’.
It will be available on most popular download sites including Amazon, 7 Digital, Spotify and iTunes (not pre-release).
To purchase with SMS, please text TRACK PLUGGING to 80818 (texts cost £1, which includes operator revenue share. UK only).
In the Keep Plugging Away music video Tom performs with fellow actors Tom Gibbons (Waterloo Road Reunited, Doctors and currently in CBBC’s Young Dracula) and Dean Smith (Waterloo Road and other TV programmes).
Tom, an Ambassador for PAPYRUS is donating all revenues to the charity, as well as wanting to raise awareness of our helpline HOPELineUK, our email/SMS services and the suicide prevention training and resources we provide.
This will enable us to reach more young people and help to prevent those in despair from killing themselves.
