Strangers come together to create a festive favourite

On a cold wet December evening, 10 strangers came together for the first time and created a cover of the festive favourite “Do they know it’s Christmas” in aid of the small Island charity – The Wight Brainy Bunch.

After an Island campaign to search for 10 Island artists and a local charity to support, “Isle of Voices” came together at Bad Cow Studios on Tuesday evening and created their own version of the classic Christmas tune.

Kerryann Ring, The brain wave behind the musical fundraiser said: “The idea came from me seeing a group of fireman covering the same song on social media. I run Isle of Pebbles and we had already done a pebble for The Wight Brainy Bunch, so I thought I’d take it one step further and see if I could do my own song for an amazing charity.

“So, I went for it, and I am totally blown away. I’m 100% happy with the result, considering we were a bunch of strangers that met for the first time in a recording studio and I can honestly say I think we smashed it”

The Wight Brainy Bunch are a small Island charity who provide emotional support and financial assistance to Island familiesaffected by brain tumours. The charity was set up by Ryde Firefighter Mark Grimes following his own diagnosis in 2015.

Isle of Voices are asking for donations to The Wight Brainy Bunch via the GoFundMe page:
