Trowbridge charity single aiming to aid disadvantaged children
11:19am Thursday 19th December 2013 in News
A Trowbridge charity aims to hit the right notes and raise much-needed funds in aid of children in disadvantaged countries.
People Against Poverty, based at the Grangeside Business Centre, in Hilperton, has enlisted the help of musicians from across Wiltshire on their charity single Do You Feel Alright? with the proceeds being used to purchase Christmas presents for children in Romania, Napal and Haiti.
The single, released on the Village Pump Record Label, features artists including Chris Hoar, Abi Leeder, Marcel Rose, David Moss, Jeremy Rosier, Arthur Taylor and the Val Huxley, People Against Poverty’s chief executive officer.
Jenny James, People Against Poverty’s office manager, said: “It is going to offer a lot of support to the children and give a boost to our charity.
“Chris is my partner and so Val had heard a lot of his stuff and the idea just snowballed from there and we are really pleased that everyone got on board.”
The group, known as People Against Poverty Band, performed their track at The White Swan, in Church Street, on Thursday, December 12 as a launch for the single which costs £1 to download, £2 for a CD and £10 for a signed CD.
