This is a coronavirus appeal. It is to raise money for health service workers and their families. By donating, or by purchasing the song or the album, you will be helping to raise money for the brave people who are fighting the deadly coronavirus.
So what is the story behind this?
My neighbour is a midwife, and when we first met, she was working in the local hospital. She is married with two young daughters. A couple of years ago she took a job teaching midwifery at the local university. And then recently the university closed on government orders. For a few days I heard the family having fun playing together in the next garden, and I thought that there were some benefits to the virus and being forced to stay at home. And then my neighbour decided to go back to nursing at the local hospital, to help the victims of the coronavirus. Her husband explained this to me. He said that she expected to get the virus, and that he expected that the whole family would probably get it. But that his wife felt it was her duty.
The similarities with the young men going to war in the trenches in 1914 immediately struck me. This is an act of supreme bravery. I resolved to do something myself. And this is it. With this coronavirus appeal, Music For Sport is going to raise as much money as it can for the people like my neighbour and their families. Please help by sharing the video, donating to the appeal, or purchasing the song HERE.
