We've recorded this single (and the EP we will be releasing alongside it) as a charity effort for the fantastic Ashbourne Animal Welfare, a shelter for cats and dogs in Derbyshire which relies on independent donations to stay open. They never put healthy animals down, and take great care of their wards for as long as it takes to find them new homes. 100% of the money made by these songs will be sent to this wonderful cause, so please do give generously (though we appreciate every pound we make for them!).

For a minimum donation of £1, you will get a download of the single "A Song is for Life and Not Just For Christmas". We decided to recruit as many of our "showbiz pals" as possible to record lines, and are extremely heartened by the positive response. Featuring over 30 guests, from all over the globe, we are incredibly thankful to each and every one of our contributors and immensely proud of what we've already accomplished.

If you want to hear more, you can download our 3 track EP for just £2.50 (all of which, again, goes to Ashbourne Animal Welfare). This features the single and two bonus tracks!

We also have a video at youtu.be/wbCvwykjHtg

Many thanks for your interest, and enjoy!
