We are very pleased to be able to share some great news from Lionheart regarding their charity Xmas single ‘Mary Did You Know‘…
Last week Dennis, Rocky and Clive went along to Little Havens Hospice to present them with a cheque for £1,000, as result of the ‘Mary Did You Know‘ charity 7″Vinyl, released last Christmas.
The band have published the following statement:
“Last year Lionheart became aware of the incredible work Little Havens children’s hospice was undertaking. The band resolved to lend its support by releasing a remixed limited edition 7-inch white vinyl version of their Christmas song ‘Mary Did You Know‘ with a re-worked version of ‘The Reality Of Miracles‘ on the B-side. 100% of the proceeds from the record were to be donated to Little Havens.”
The single sold so well, both as vinyl and download, that the band were able to present Little Havens with a cheque for £1,000. Dennis Stratton from Lionheart stated “We are so very grateful to everyone who went out and bought the single and therefore helped us to raise this amazing figure of £1,000. It was beyond what we had hoped for and all we can say on behalf of the band and the staff and children at Little Havens is thank you so very, very much”.
Tanya King, Philanthropy Manager at Havens Hospices added: “Our thanks and gratitude go out to all the Lionheart fans who bought the record in order to support us in our work. It sounds like a cliché, but every pound really is ‘Making every day count’ for those we are caring for today, and those we will meet in the future too. So thank you all once again for your incredibly kind donation of £1,000.00.”
