FIFTEEN music students have created a Christmas song to raise money for children’s charity Camille’s Appeal.

The West Suffolk College students, on their second year of an extended music diploma course, wrote and produced This Winter as part of an assignment to create and market a charity Christmas single.

Rebecca Woolham, 17, from Stowmarket plays the piano on the single and is featured in some of the backing vocals.

She said: “I think it’s really good – it’s a happy, cheesy Christmas song for people to listen to.”

A college spokeswoman described This Winter as ‘a classic Christmas single with a feel-good lyric and catchy chorus line, which builds from a simple acoustic beginning to an impressive multi-layered ending’.

The song, recorded in the college’s own recording studio, will be performed live at The Masons Arms pub, in Bury, at 7pm on Wednesday and will be distributed online via Facebook, Tumblr and YouTube. It can also be downloaded for free, and donations made, via www.justgiving.com/Decibell-Pro

Camille’s Appeal is a charity which helps children under the age of five who are suffering with brain tumours.
