Thanks to everyone who donated and who helped spread the word, helping us reach our final total of £1537.97! 153% of our the original target of £1000. We really did smash it! It was a the highlight of 2017 for me! On behalf of myself, Justin, my dad & my family, thank you! :) x
The single will remain on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp etc with all sales and stream revenue being donated to MND Scotland.
Since its release and launch on June 12, our charity single fundraiser - 'Try Another Day' hit the £1000 target last Friday less than a month in and it is now sitting at £1186! We are blown away by the response and support you have given us with the 58 donations so far as well as the downloads on iTunes & bandcamp! We will leave it open for a while yet to see how far we can go?

Help us fight Motor Neuron Disease and reach our £1000 target by listening to music! John McConville - Charity Single - Try Another Day: Download from Itunes and donate direct to our JustGiving page
This week our Dad's charity single 'Try Another Day' is released to raise money for #MNDScotland on iTunes, Spotify and where ever you like to get your music. Just search ‘Try Another Day’ and or ‘John McConville’ on iTunes or your favourite music site!
Our Dad - John, has been living with the disease for a
couple of years now and 'MND Scotland' is the charity that helps and supports him. For my American family & friends MND - 'Motor Neurone Disease' is known in the USA as 'Lou Gehrig's Disease.'
When he said he had written a new song 2 years ago I said we
should record it! We started recording the song for fun a year ago when my wife Noelle and I went up to visit, recording his vocals in the bedroom. I took it back to London to work on. I reworked it with my brother Justin in the beginning of 2017. The charity idea was inspired by all the great work that 'Gordon Aikman' did for the charity and MND in general; he sadly died earlier this year.
We have set a target of raising £1000 - you can help us
reach that target or smash it by downloading the song for 99p and or by donating directly to our ‘Just Giving’ page. Search 'Try Another Day' on iTunes or your favourite music site!
The money raised will go towards research for a cure for
this devastating disease and also help people living with it. In
Scotland there are over 400 people diagnosed with MND at any one time.
Thank you for taking the time to read our story and thank
you very much if you decide to help!! We will keep you posted on the progress of this fundraiser over the coming weeks and months.
Chris McConville & family.
