Worthing-based band Men at Risk have released a World Cup song with all the proceeds set to go to local hospice, St Barnabas House.
The three piece, consisting of Ian Chilvers, Luke Osborne and Jamie Parkinson, are committed to raising money for charities and have raised thousands of pounds for Cancer Research during the five years they have been together.
The song, titled ‘We’ll Drink a Drink, a Drink’, is a cover version of ‘Lily the Pink’ by The Scaffold and is available on iTunes for £0.99.
Jamie said: “We are a charity band in Worthing and have raised £6,000 in the last four years supporting local charities and Cancer Research UK nationally.
“We have all had such warming experience of St Barnabas where they have looked after our loved ones. At such heart-breaking times St Barnabas have offered that ray of light and support.
“We would love to raise thousands of pounds from this song – every penny will go to St Barnabas so please keep sharing and spreading the word!”
Wendy Bardsley, Community Fundraising Manager at St Barnabas House, added: “Men at Risk have come up with a fun and novel way to fundraise for St Barnabas House, doing something they clearly love.
“I can see our supporters having a World Cup evening with their friends and playing this tune when we win!
“We need to raise £6.5 million to pay for all of our care costs this year, so good luck to Men at Risk in your fundraising and come on England!”
The band are also recording a music video for the song at the Windmill Harvester in Littlehampton on Wednesday 13 June at 8pm and have invited anyone interested in appearing in the video to come along, with an England shirt if possible.
