Following the death of a Skiddle staff member, Getintothis’ Shaun Ponsonby reports on their charity campaign for his favourite song to chart.
Since Skiddle sadly lost their friend and colleague Chris Glaba to cancer earlier this month, they have embarked on a campaign to get his favourite song to chart in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Their goal is to raise a minimum of £100,000 for the charity via downloads of The 2 Bears‘ Church. Skiddle approached the duo – consisting of Hot Chip‘s Joe Goddard and Raf Rundell – who immediately agreed to allow them to promote the track, with all proceeds going to Macmillan.
Skiddle are very much part of the fabric of the North West music scene, and we can safely say nearly every promoter working in the area and beyond has used them and been supported by them at some point. The work the Glaba and his colleagues have done is easy to take for granted, but highlighting his passions in this way pay a fitting tribute, not only to Glaba, but to all the people working hard behind the scenes.
You can get involved with this worthy campaign by heading over to Thunderclap and agreeing to share the message on your social media channels on when proceeds from the track will begin collecting for the charity on December 23 (not a moment before!).
