Bromley woman dreams of arranging One Direction concert

News Shopper: Nicole Clark wants to arrange a One Direction concert in the Philippines in November Nicole Clark wants to arrange a One Direction concert in the Philippines in November

A Bromley woman is desperate to get hold of One Direction so she can persuade them to do a concert in the Philippines.

Last year Nicola Clark spent five weeks in the south-east Asian country, helping rebuild the lives of families displaced by Typhoon Haiyan, which struck last November.

The typhoon killed 6,268 people and left countless others without a home.

Miss Clark says the people stay positive through music and song, and are particularly fond of One Direction.

The 37-year-old, of North Road, said: "Even with everything that has happened there the people were always smiling and maintain a positive outlook.

"In many cases they have no any material belongings and rely on charities for food, water and shelter.

"I’m well travelled but I have never seen a culture who are so uplifted by music.

"They are constantly singing and dancing and from what I saw, this has been a superb coping mechanism for the teenagers.

"One Direction are their absolute favourites and I am therefore campaigning for One Direction to perform in November this year, on the first anniversary of the Typhoon."

News Shopper:

Miss Clark says despite calling the group's management and tweeting the boys themselves, she has had no luck.

She added: "I got my parents to send some One Direction stuff out when I was there and they went crazy - One Direction should have been there.

"If they could go out there and do a concert it would make such a difference to the people.

"Justin Bieber went over there as well and he said his experience was amazing."

I think this is a very moving story. Whats so sad is that people only take notice when these awful events take place and hit the news. What they forget is that these families have had their lives, homes and loved ones ripped from them it will take a long long time to rebuild their lives, and out of this the children who suffer in all aspects some have lost so much that nothing can ever replace there losses. I think it would be a fantastic thing if one direction could do a concert on the anniversary so that instead of when these children look back they wont see sadness loss and devestation but hope that they are not forgotton and that anything is possible.
