A group of talented local musicians and singers have joined forces for a Christmas charity single. They’ve recorded a version of The Hollies’ ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother’ to raise money for Unique Kidz & Co., who provide specialist services for disabled children and their families.
Last year they recorded ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ and raised £1,850 for Unique Kidz. This year they hope to raise even more.
