A SULLY-BASED charity is backing a Christmas chart attack on the X-Factor’s dominance by joining the call for a new band to secure top spot.
Ty Hafan family hospice is calling on backing for the team at the BBC’s The Call Centre and its boss Nev as they raise funds for the charity with their single SWSWSWN – and original song inspired by Nev’s popular saying “Some Will, Some Won’t, So What – Next!”
Nev features on vocals with music by The Call Centre band The Dialists and the lyrics focus on the workplace’s characters, including Hayley and Twe and Nev’s run-in with Angela Rippon on The One Show.
The release also features a unique cover of Mr Brightside with Nev talking on the Brandon Flowers role in a version he calls Mr Brightside C Sharp.
The song is Nev’s personal favourite and is sung by every new starter at Nev’s company, Save Britain Money.
Nev said: “I’m obviously excited about this one, I have been a frustrated rock star my whole life so the chance to record a single is fantastic. I’m incredibly grateful to Music Wales who are providing their services fee of charge so we can give all profits straight to a charity.”
“The chance to raise a good amount of money for charity is what is driving our efforts. Most charity records pick the big UK wide charities to support but as a Welsh company recording in Wales I felt it was important to support a charity that does important work across Wales. T? Hafan offers comfort, care and support for life-limited children and young people and it is an honour to support them.”
T? Hafan’s director of marketing and fundraising, Jeremy Jackson said: “We are absolutely delighted that we’ve been chosen by Nev, the directors and employees of Save Britain Money as the charity beneficiary of the Call Centre’s Christmas single. T? Hafan serves all of Wales and we need to ensure awareness of our services to attract referrals of children in need of our care throughout the country.
“The choice of T? Hafan as a beneficiary will not only make a great contribution to the running costs of care but will also help extend our reach, heighten awareness and help ensure that no life-limited child is uncared for and no family unsupported. For T? Hafan to be recognised by the Call Centre speaks volumes for Nev’s sense of community and social responsibility towards the people of Wales.”
The single, released on December 16, will see all profits raised from the sale donated to T? Hafan.
It will be available to download online via iTunes and Amazon for 79p and the CD single will be available to purchase for £2.25 from HMV.com, Play.com and from select Tesco stores in Wales.
