Hello, and very best wishes for the festive season from the team at ExcludedUK.
They chose to record the first verse of 'Silent Night' - perfect for use with the Silent Nights collaboration between #ExcludedUK and #WeMakeEvents which took place last Friday, 18th December.
Each child recorded and submitted their vocals and their videos virtually, to a backing track provided by the fabulously-talented music teacher and ExcludedUK member, Kate Cameron.
James Mank, made famous by his Twitter video appeal to Rishi Sunak and subsequent appearance on ITVs 'This Morning', sits front-centre on the video and replicates his first video by flipping cards forward showing the lyrics. Above James on screen are three delightful girls signing in BSL and Makaton to encourage inclusivity for all.
ExcludedUK a non profit grassroots NGO founded to provide a platform for those denied fair and adequate financial support from the Governments COVID-19 Support schemes since the pandemic began in March. With a community of over 60,000 members across all industries, age groups and regions, we estimate that three million UK tax payers have been excluded from the same support as others, which has lead to thousands of people losing their livelihoods, careers, and homes, and sadly, for some, their lives.
ExcludedUK has been fundraising to provide urgent help and support for those affected in the forms of business and career advice, debt support and 121 counselling sessions within 48 hours. Please find more information on our website www.excludeduk.org.
