Fundraising music video in aid of FORCE Cancer charity, Exeter

‘Help!’ (Beatles Cover) By Brazen sound studios & friends.

Arranged & produced by Ian Poole of Brazen Sound Studios along with his wife, Shelley (who is a singer and specialist dental nurse at the RD&E). With the studio closed and like many others, our wedding & function gigs cancelled for 2020, we had to focus on an isolation collaboration, working from our home in Exmouth.

Here it is – Tune in, watch, like, comment and share ❤️ 

What is is for?

Our local small charities are really struggling right now through the covid19 crisis. All of us have been affected by cancer in some way be it a friend, a family member or personally.

Brazen Sound Studios wanted to do something to help. Music, for us, was the answer.

Force are a really important charity in the area. Offering support to people with cancer and their families in many ways – from counselling services to complimentary therapies and benefits advice. They also fund crucial cancer research, a doctorate at the university and medical equipment for the RD&E oncology wards.

Force are a completely self funded service – with donations coming from a variety sources including its charity shop and fundraising activities which are so limited at the moment during the covid crisis.

None of their funding comes from the NHS, the UK Government or any other national source – they generate it all themselves. You can help us, help them to help others.

What can I do to help?

To help our cause – just text HELPME to 70085 to donate £2
(Texts cost £2 plus one standard rate message). Tune in, watch, like, comment and share our video far and wide.
