GET ready to be punked as one of the most unlikely combinations comes together again next Saturday.

Punk 4 The Homeless, which takes place at the Centenary Methodist Church, Red Lion Street, Boston, is returning on June 4, to help raise awareness and money for children’s charity Casa Alianza.

Organiser Gary Eagling said: “Yes, we are living in a recession, a time of unrest and violence but that doesn’t mean we can do nothing to help make our world better.

“We can help relieve the suffering of some of the worlds poorest children, our future.”

Starting at 7pm, the gig will include four bands coming from as far away as Brighton.

Oiz II Men are a quintet from east London, hoping to drive hard-hitting punk rock into the music scene.

Skurvi, from Brighton, consists of four members.

Dole Queue Heroes, hailing from the nearby district of South Holland, is formed from members of local bands from the past which didn't last very long.

Finally, Eagle Spits is a three-piece punk band fronted by a poet of the same name.

Casa Alianza is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to the rehabilitation and defence of homeless children in Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico and Guatemala.

Founded in 1981, they work with approximately 10,000 street children a year most of whom have been orphaned, abused or abandoned.

Doors open at 6pm.

Entry is free with a suggested donation of £5.
