Mortgage industry launches charity single in aid of the homeless
More than 30 years after Band Aid released a song to raise money for starving children in Africa, a group of people working in the mortgage industry have come together to record a Christmas charity single to raise money for young people closer to home.
The song Take Me Home was released this week and documents life on the streets in the UK, a reality for a growing number of young people. Proceeds from the song will go to End Youth Homelessness (EYH).
It costs EYH £25 a day to put a roof over a young person’s head and give them the healthcare, education and employment they need to turn their lives around. Every penny raised will make a difference to the lives of the young people currently on our streets.
Take Me Home was recorded earlier this month by M.I.C (Mortgage Industry Collective), featuring SPF’s very own mortgage broker Howard Levy on drums. Paul Brett, Andrew Montlake, Kit Thompson, Amanda Fenner and Andy Rowe, made up the rest of the band. The song was recorded at the famous Powerstudio in London, owned by producer Benny D, who has worked with a host of top names including Stormzy, Boy George, Kylie, Plan B, Robbie Williams, Paloma Faith and Depeche Mode.
Howard Levy, director at SPF Private Clients, said: ‘I was privileged to be the drummer on the mortgage industry’s charity single as it was in aid of such a good cause. As an industry that provides loans to help people purchase properties we felt it important to do something for those people who find themselves homeless, particularly at this time of year.’
Take Me Home is available from the following outlets:
