Students in Sheffield are singing out for Christmas in support of a South Yorkshire hospice.
The students, who help run Sheffield University’s radio station, Forge Radio, have released a charity single to raise funds for Rotherham Hospice.
Business management student Laurie Fletcher has organised the release of I Can’t Wait for Christmas with fellow students Harry Fellows and Josh Roberts, who together help to run the radio station.
Laurie, aged 21, said: “Two members of the team came forward with the idea and we ran with it.
“Harry and I are from a musical background so we were pretty keen to get everyone behind it.”
Harry, aged 20, said: “I study music, so having access to the music rooms at university was a real help.
“We had everyone – from people who’d never picked up a guitar before to some really good musicians – taking part.
“It was a really good way to get everyone into the Christmas spirit at the station.”
Rotherham Hospice is Forge Radio’s designated charity of the year.
Radio volunteers have organised a range of events throughout the year to raise funds for it, including pub quizzes and bake sales.
A hospice spokesman said: “The’ve been very helpful with fundraising. I know a lot of students have got involved such as with the Christmas single.
“Their support has been really welcome.”
