Aiming at the Christmas No 1

December 11th 2012


This Christmas a group from Crisis in Newcastle will release a single, the profits of which will go to Crisis and Streetwise Opera.

The single, which features a choir, strings and sleigh bells, was composed by Alan Robson, who came up with the idea after taking an art course at Crisis Newcastle.

Robson, who has a keen interest in art, painting and music, was fully supported by Crisis at every stage of the work, from penning the lyrics to record the vocals and guitar. Now a self-employed artist and musician, a portion of the proceeds will go to Robson to help him develop his artistic ambitions.

June Grimes, director of Crisis Skylight Newcastle, said: “We are delighted Alan has come so far because of the support he has received at Crisis and are very grateful to him for donating the proceeds of his brilliant, festive single to Crisis. We hope everyone gets behind it and that it is a huge success.”
