Earlier this year we were visited by some extra-special VIPs; the very talented children from Grasmere Primary! They were joined by songwriter Jamie Norton and Take That’s Mark Owen to record a new version of the band’s song ‘Hold Up A Light’.
The recording is due to be released as a single on April 26th and proceeds will be going to Salisbury Hospice, a charity very close to Jamie’s heart, as well as the school’s FROGS appeal to build an outdoor play space for the children.
Jamie is going one step (or, more accurately, about 26.2 miles worth of steps) further in his charity efforts and will be running the London Marathon to raise even more money for the incredible Hospice.
“When my good friend and collaborator, Jamie Norton, asked me to be involved in rerecording ‘Hold Up A Light’ to raise money for the hospice where his mum spent her final weeks, I absolutely wanted to help in any way that I could. Since then this project has grown and grown and I’d like to wish him the best of luck with his first marathon run, and hope the project raises lots of pennies for the associated charities.” said Mark.
Team Dean St. are proud to have hosted such a worth while cause.
‘Hold Up A Light’ will be available to purchase from Friday 26th April.
