Islander Tom Day is not only a musical chap, but it seems also an adventurous one.
Later this year, he’ll be attempting a trek to Mount Everest base camp in order to raise money for Childreach International.
He says, “the saying goes: “if you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten”, so with this is mind I feel it’s time to change and do as much as I can for a charity that focuses on child welfare with sustainable solutions.”
With this in mind, Tom is not only doing the trek through Nepal, but has also got together with a group of friends on the Island and recorded some songs to help with the fundraising.
Samples of the songs are available on his website and if you like what hear then you can make a donation whilst downloading.
Those involved include Lucy Court (vocals); Tom Gardner (guitars and various other musical instruments); Rupert Brown (drums, guitar and various instruments); David Granshaw (drums and mixing); Andy Parkin (Saxophone); Tim Parkin (trumpet) and Ben Van De Geyn (guitar effects).
Tom’s already raised raised £1,460 towards his £2,500 target and with your help might be able to push it up a bit further.
Childreach work in partnership with local communities in the developing world.
