We will do whatever it takes to help you live life as fully as you can


The Twitter Band Project was "born" out of a seedling of an idea.  No concept of whether or not it was feasible, realistic or even a good idea.  It turned out to be a FANTASTIC idea ... read here for the full story. 

The sole aim was to raise money for charity.

Various musically talented types collaborated virtually, via Twitter, to create a version of Rod Stewart's 1971 classic, "Maggie May" - the finished song was launched on Sunday 6th February on BBC Radio 5 Live at 0655hrs GMT - listen again here: and on YouTube at 2000hrs GMT - watch and listen on YouTube

Macmillan Cancer Support was chosen by the band members. All band members gave their time for free.
