Please buy your copy now and let’s make some money for Cancer Research UK and MacMillan Cancer Support!

A BRACKNELL singing group could be battling this year’s X-Factor winner in the race to be Christmas number one.

The Glee Club has recorded its very own charity single “Light a Candle” and hopes to ride a wave of seasonal goodwill to the top of the Christmas charts.

After wrapping up recording at Sandy Lane Primary School on Sunday club captain Richard Whennell said: “It’s been an absolute blast, I’ve had the best time. We’re going to put it up on iTunes within a month and everyone has orders to spread the word when it’s out and we’ll see what happens. We’re quite serious about getting it in the charts.”

Proceeds from downloads will go to Macmillan Cancer Support and Cancer Research UK and singer Wendy Gribble from Twyford said: “It’s great to do something worthwhile but we’ve all enjoyed it so much, I didn’t want to stop.”

Cancer sufferer Nigel Lewis-Baker from Leatherhead spoke to the group and wished them luck with their effort.

He said: “I’ve got terminal prostate cancer and I work with a number of charities as a ‘cancer voice’. Cancer Research UK and Macmillan are two of them so this fits in very nicely. I think it’s fantastic what they are doing to promote these charities and I wish them every success.”

The single is available on iTunes to download by searching Light a Candle Glee Club UK.
