Young singers from a village school near Lincoln have recorded a song for Children in Need 2015, composed by their own teacher.

The talented pupils at Cherry Willingham Primary School have learned and performed the song, ‘Will you help this child?’, written by class teacher Damian Thursby to raise awareness of issues young people can face. The first verse and final line of the song are sung by year 6 pupils Jasmine and Ebony, with the whole school, aged 4 – 11 years, joining in for the rest of the song.

A thousand copies of the CD are being made this week, which you can either purchase online through JustGiving, or simply pick up a copy from the school reception or Stokes Coffee and Tea, in Lincoln, who have sponsored the project. You can also buy the song as an MP3, so please check out the school website for details. CDs are also available to to buy from Friday 13th November, to coincide with BBC Children in Need day.

So far, the youngsters have raised over £2000 for Children in Need. Siren FM Breakfast presenters Jarrad Johnson and Michael Barwise went along to the school this week to chat to Mr Thursby and the young singers.

Sorry – we have faded out the song in full, because we would still like you to buy it.
