An uplifting and moving performance by a ‘Singing Solicitor’ has captured emotions on social media, as donations flood in in support of a Northamptonshire charity.
“A shining example of teamwork”, “everyone should be immensely proud”, “a beautiful song” and “I am so, so proud of the amazing people in our local community” were among the many comments received after Kevin Rogers, chairman of regional law firm Wilson Browne Solicitors, launched a fundraising single to raise money for The Lewis Foundation.
Kevin enlisted the help of Kettering General Hospital’s choir, broadcaster John Griff, and Northamptonshire-based musicians Beccy Hurrell and Ian Taylor, to film and record a heart-warming rendition of Bob Dylan’s classic; Make You Feel My Love.
The track and footage was launched live on LinkedIn on World Cancer Day, and is now available to stream, buy or share, with donations via the JustGiving page going to The Lewis Foundation – an award-winning charity which provides free gifts and care packs to adult cancer patients in 15 hospitals across the Midlands
Kevin said: “We have all been blown away by the initial response – myself, John, the fantastic KGH choir and local musicians, Beccy and Ian – and to see the momentum continuing to grow is just amazing. There were many tears of joy during the live launch.
“People are sharing their own personal stories now too which is boosting awareness of our campaign.
“Our first ever Singing Solicitor fundraiser in 2021 raised over £2,500 for The Lewis Foundation – but we’re already well over £1,800 with gift aid. This money will make such a difference to those living with cancer and who are undergoing gruelling treatment. We’re urging more people to donate.”
Lorraine added: “The song and video has touched so many and is a beautiful reminder of why we do the work we do – showing love and kindness by giving free gifts and care packs to adult cancer patients. We can’t thank Kevin and the whole team enough for what they are doing, and we can’t wait to see where this campaign will end.”
