Wednesday 1st November saw the launch of the Framework Charity Christmas Single 'Reach Out and Lend a Helping Hand', written and composed by Mr Lawry.
The press launch was held in the Kilborn Community Room with representatives from local newspapers, radio stations, Ashfield Council and Framework itself. Parents and family members of our Junior Choir were invited along to the event to hear the song performed live for the first time. It was a privilege to host such a special and momentous occasion in school.
This is such an exciting project made possible by very talented, humble and generous people who are so giving of their time to think about others. Here at KWS, we feel incredibly lucky to be associated with Mr Lawry. He has been a busy man over the past year not only composing the score and lyrics to the song but in bringing together 300 musicians to create a moving and meaningful piece.
We also feel privileged that both our Junior and Community Choir, under the leadership of Mrs Harman, were asked to play a part in this song. As a school, we are extremely proud to be part of this wonderful project - a project that we wish every success; a project which we hope continues to raise awareness of homelessness within our community; a project where we hope people realise the difference they can make by 'reaching out and lending a helping hand'.
Now wouldn't a Christmas Number One be great! All proceeds from the single will go to Framework.
Here's how you can help:
- CDs are available in school for £5.
- You can visit the website www.helpframework.com and order or download the track.
- You can download the track through iTunes.
A huge well done to all involved.
