Ulverston postal staff hope song delivers help to Barrow hospital
Last updated at 16:44, Friday, 11 October 2013
POST Office workers have given a stamp of approval to their local hospital by recording a charity single.
In Life, by local musician Abi Rigg, was recorded at Ulverston’s Big Blue Studios.
The lyrics were co-written by Chris Waddington who funded the project with his colleague Jess Henderson.
The duo, who both work at the post office, in County Road, are hoping the record will help their branch raise funds for the children’s ward at Furness General Hospital.
Vocalist Miss Rigg, 18, of Cemetery Hill, Barrow, said: “My main focus is raising as much money as possible.
“I think the children’s ward is really underrated so they really deserve it. I hope it will do really well but anything we raise will be more than we had before.”
Mr Waddington said: “The song is nice and mellow and Abi has a very soulful voice that complements the lyrics and music perfectly.
“It is an inspiring song and I think people will really enjoy it.”
While he may be new to the music business, Mr Waddington has high hopes for success: “We are really hoping that the whole community can get behind the song and support a local artist, enabling us to make as much money as possible for this worthy cause.
“The aim is to get around 3,000 downloads in a week and crack the top 40.
“This sounds ambitious but with the help of the good people of Barrow it is achievable.”
The song is available to download on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Play.com and Spotify.
