Over 1 million people have been forced to rely on food bank hand outs to survive. The situation is desperate and winter is coming.
I'm joining forces with our heroic former Miners at U.K. Miners Pension Scheme Association for Justice and fair play and the sensational singer song writer Joe Solo to make a Christmas record the proceeds from which will go to support local food banks!
It's a terrific idea and Joe has penned a powerful Christmas song titled "Merry Christmas from Hatfield (Main)" The story of the song is Christmas in Hatfield (Main) at the time of the 84 Miners strike and how people came together to give the miners and their families, by now destitute and without food, a Christmas to remember!
It's a very emotional Christmas song so expect some tears, especially when the video is released! We also hope to raise public awareness of the Miners Pension Scandal in which successive governments have so far robbed the miners pension fund of a staggering £8 billion leaving our former miners, who risked their lives every day to keep our homes, hospitals and schools warm destitute.
We shall be recording the single on Sunday 30th October @ the Central club, in Stainforth Nr Doncaster DN7 5AJ and everyone is welcome! We will need you to learn the chorus before (we will distribute the words) and dress for men will be donkey jacket with NCB or BC on the back, pit helmet or flat cap (or similar attire) and ladies should be blinged to the max!
Expect an early Christmas party! Everyone is giving their time freely for the single! The Miners are BACK to take the Christmas NO1 for our food banks so come and support them, be apart of it and most importantly buy the single when it's released!
