Businesses, residents and talent from the Sleaford area have lent their support to a charity single vying for the Christmas Number One spot.

The song, called 1914 - The Carol of Christmas, features an ensemble of military voices and soloists, including Fl Lt Matt Little, who is based at RAF College Cranwell.

He described the project as ‘a beautiful song to commemorate those who died in the First World War’.

The video accompanying the single was directed and produced by Greg Goodall of AWOL Productions, based in Wellingore.

It was filmed at number of local locations, including The Tack Room tea room at the Manor Crafts Centre in Fulbeck and on the estate of Richard Overton, whose lands include the Lincolnshire Cliff overlooking the Trent Valley just above Welbourn.

In addition, Forget Me Not Fashion at the Navenby Antiques Centre provided the period costumes and helped with hair and make-up.

The song is co-composed by Chris Eaton, who wrote 1990’s Christmas Number One Saviour’s Day.

Proceeds will go towards the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, and ABF The Soldier’s Charity.

Find it on iTunes, Amazon MP3 Store and Google Play.
