The journey started in August 2017 when the three Assistant Managers of the Corporate Traveller Gatwick Office had this crazy idea to release a single to raise money for this amazing charity. This being said we have had Christmas music playing in the office since the summer.
Mashing up the music to create this festive track, David Goodall worked alongside his band mates, James Butler, Matt Henry and Mark Heppell. Joining them was the creative and extremely talented James Hadden who mixed the track, making us all sound fabulous and bringing the dream alive.
We are no means professional singers, and haven’t had any vocal coaching or training prior to recording this video. Everything was created from within the crazy walls of our Gatwick based office, and recorded at St Wilfreds School in Crawley (to whom we are so grateful for accommodating us all!)
We are all totally blown away with the love and support shown on our JustGiving page prior to this going live. We have a huge target of £1000 to raise, which Flight Centre will ever so kindly double. So if you like to donate, please do so using the JustGiving link below:
