“I am only one,
But still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”
My first fundraiser was via a limited edition CD (50 copies which were kindly gifted to us by Dischromatics Ltd) of a track called 'Surrender' by Killing For Company, featuring Stuart Cable (Stereophonic founding member and original drummer).
With donations taken for the 50 CDs we were able to donate £200 to Tŷ Hafan and their Music Therapy project (it seemed appropriate given how the money was raised). The track can still be downloaded with the proceeds also going to Tŷ Hafan.
We had our press release printed in papers across South Wales (such as Western Mail, South Wales Echo, South Wales Evening Post, Cynon Valley Leader, Rhondda Leader, Pontypridd Observer) as well as on several news and music websites, and our poster re-tweeted on Twitter by singer Cerys Matthews (Catatonia), BBC radio presenter Bethan Elfyn, Matthew Pritchard of Dirty Sanchez fame and Hollywood actor Michael Sheen.
You can download the excellent Killing For Company / Stuart Cable track 'Surrender' via iTunes or Googleplay (links below).
Download for 99p and help us to help others. Thank you.
Having raised an initial £200 for the children's hospice, and after having visited the facility, we want to continue our support by helping make people aware of the amazing work they do at Tŷ Hafan and hopefully raising more money for them in the future.
