Front man from pop band The Feeling will perform at a charity gig on Sunday to raise money for an anti-Pinkham Way campaign.

Lead singer and songwriter, Dan Gillespie-Sells, grew up in Muswell Hill and is publically against plans to build a major waste plant at Pinkham Way in Friern Barnet and Muswell Hill.

All proceeds from the charity gig at the Boogaloo music venue in Archway Road, Highgate, will go to the Pinkham Way Alliance, which is a campaign group opposing the plans proposed by the North London Waste Authority.

Under current plans, the waste plant would deal with waste from seven boroughs across London and be home to a fleet of waste trucks run by Barnet Council.

Sakina Chenot, who is a member of the Pinkham Way Alliance, said: “We are at a crucial stage of our campaign, giving us the biggest opportunity of halting the development of this waste plant so far.

“With plans being examined in June, all the money raised will go to paying experts to help prepare our case.”

Campaigners are concerned about the health risks if the plant is built to people living in 10,000 homes in the one kilometre radius of north London.

The Feeling, which formed in 1995, had a number one hit album in 2008 with Join With Us and were nominated for a BRIT award in 2007 for best song with track Fill My Little World.
