“I got involved with the UCL cervical cancer charity through Sarah Phillips whose mother Debbie died last year. It was therefore a great pleasure for me to be able to help her daughter Sarah with her wish to record a song for Debbie's funeral. A few days after Debbie died, Sarah approached me and explained she wanted to record a song in memory of her mother at the funeral and needed my assistance. She sang a version of Paulo Nutini's Autumn into her mobile phone and I added a musical arrangement which was then posted on youtube.
There was an immediate worldwide reaction to the song and to date her original video has received 452,000 hits. Autumn reached no 11 on Itunes and she has released an ep with 3 songs. The target for the UCL cervical cancer research unit charity which is called "debbiefund", is £700,000 and will fund 4 years of research into finding a cure for Cervical cancer. Sarah has already raised £450,000 from her music.
I also decided to try and run my 1st Marathon this year and so it seemed perfevtly fitting for me to help raise some more for the charity.
