With your help we can make the number 1 spot this Christmas!
We’ve teamed up with Walking with the Wounded to raise vital funds for homeless veterans. The track is a festive recording of The Proclaimers’ hit song I’m Gonna Be (500 miles) and all proceeds from the single will go to Walking With The Wounded and The Military Wives Choirs Foundation.
The Choir is made up of singers from MWC Chivenor, MWC Lympstone and MWC Taunton, proud to represent the 75 choirs of the Military Wives Choirs Foundation.
The single is downloadable here for just 99p.
As the single launched Sara Scott, MWCF Trustee said, “On the recent Walk of Britain dozens of Military Wives Choirs came out in force along the route to sing in support of Walking With The Wounded and we’re absolutely thrilled to partner on this release.”
Jimmy Hibbert, WWTW Trustee and brainchild behind Walking Home For Christmas campaign commented: “We are extremely excited to be partnering up with the Military Wives Choirs and striving to secure Christmas Number One in the charts this year. This is a great initiative to get as many people as possible to know about our wounded veterans who need our support. We hope people will do their bit by buying the single and also signing up to WWTW’s campaign, Walking Home For Christmas.
Shelli, one of the singers taking part said, “As a Scot, this song is really special to me. It is an incredible feeling to be involved in the recording and to be a part of something so fabulous knowing that we’re helping to raise money for two wonderful charities.”
We’re delighted to see three of our seventy-five military wives choirs back in the studio today, recording the hit song 500 Miles by The Proclaimers. Joining up with Walking with the Wounded we’re helping to raise awareness and funds for our two great charities this Christmas. Keep a look out for the release date, coming […]
