Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.


I’ve written a song and want us all to make as much money together for the NHS as we can. Let's do this!

Here's a link to the song:

I woke up early one day during Lockdown with a tune in my head. I thought I’d better get up and write it down.

My background: I’m a trained opera singer and vocal tutor at University of Chichester where we are supporting our wonderful students during Lockdown.

If you watched Endeavour Series 7 you may have seen me as the tragic opera heroine - I'm not really that dramatic in real life!

I was lucky that our great friend and neighbour, the legend Guy Fletcher (Dire Straits) agreed to play guitar, produce and mix the track. How lucky was that!! 

I wrote the melody, lyrics, piano and string parts. When Guy recorded guitar on the track I was so excited to hear what he had done! When I heard it, I realised that his playing had completely dictated the direction the song would take.

It has been an incredible experience to have enlisted the support of extraordinary musicians in the recording of this song. Andy Brown (viola soloist and Director of London Metropolitan Orchestra) and celebrated
cellist Caroline Dale both contributed fantastic performances. Composer and our dear friend Matthew Slater gave invaluable help in overseeing and producing the remote recordings.

I also have a great debt of gratitude to my husband, Film, TV and Games composer Stephen Baysted, who recorded my song and worked hard with Anne Miller and Frankie Videtta of Accorder Music our publishers to get it out on all digital platforms as quickly as possible to support our wonderful NHS.

We will beat this virus and save lives.

Please donate generously and I hope you find the
song uplifting. I really do! 

Keep yourselves safe.

One of our wonderful local health care assistants, Jess at St Richard's Hospital in Chichester said, "We do this job because we love it but we thought we would share with the world what these wonderful individuals are achieving, to fight this virus with all they have and come out the other end! Its inspiring."

Thank you!
