So many people need so much support during the current crisis we are faced with, but we have selected 2 charities to support with our bit of fun video. (and Excellent work from editor Elliott C Spray)
We hope you enjoy it, and if you can spare even a small amount for charity, we thank you.
1. The Addenbrookes Charitable Trust. We are a sea shanty band based in the landlocked county of Cambridgeshire, the front line services need your help. Your donation will aid the wellbeing of staff through this difficult time, provide vital equipment needed to support the Intensive Care Unit and much more.
2. The Royal National Lifeboat Institution. We may be far from the sea but we wonder how on earth will this vital service to our sailors and fishermen be sustained without donations?
Like everyone else, we are affected by the very fluid situation with the virus and the situation surrounding it. We are seeing events cancelled and, despite being incredibly frustrating for us as a band, fully understand the decisions that are having to be made.
However, Isle ‘ave a Shanty remain available. Of course we will follow Government Guidelines on staying safe and everything else that goes with it. We are still hoping to fulfil all our bookings, but this is out of our control
We are using the space provided by such cancellations to busk, practice and hopefully make a promo show-reel.
Rest Assured, as soon as we are allowed we will be there stronger than ever
Isle ‘ave a Shanty live with a Fish and Chip Supper
1st Sutton Scouts (Cambs.) have an ongoing project to raise over £200k to replace the existing scout hut at Sutton Gault. To support this project we performed live on 8/2/20. We are delighted to say we helped to raise £560 for the project. Thanks to everyone who came along to support.
