The musical talents of a group of students will be helping to support a pioneering charity in Wymondham.
Five sixth-formers from Wymondham High School have written and recorded their own Christmas song.
But X Factor winner Matt Cardle should not worry about the recording pipping him to the coverted festive number one spot, the upbeat single called Christmas Time is only being sold locally to raise funds for the cancer charity Star Throwers.
Tom Morris, 18, from Wreningham, said: “Christmas Time is a classic up-beat Christmas tune with a popular feel and influences from other sub genres. Acoustic guitar, piano, drums and digital mixing is included along with both solo singers and acapella choral sections.
“The project is part of the school’s extracurricular activities which encourage us to get involved in community projects. I am hoping to study music technology at university so I was keen to get involved.
“We were very keen to support Star Throwers because it is a Wymondham-based charity which does really important work helping local people who are facing a very difficult time in their lives.”
The CD is available from the high school and Star Throwers in Melton Road. Copies are also being sold outside Waitrose in Wymondham this morning.
