Newport duo release Christmas single in aid of homelessness project

Singers Stephen Dombromski and Gerrard Dupe have recorded a Christmas single to raise funds for the charity centre they attend.

The duo, who both have physical mobility problems, recorded Christmas is Here with the support of staff at at the Compass Centre run by Solas Cymru, part of the Seren Group.

The centre, in Newport, south east Wales, supports homeless and socially excluded people and the duo attend twice a week for sessions on creative writing and music production.

Gerrard and Steve were keen to make best use of their passion for music by producing the single and using it as an opportunity to raise awareness about the sad times some people experience around Christmas time and to offer something back to the centre by donating a proportion of the profit to it.

The song can be downloaded for 79 pence online, and 65% of the money raised will be re-invested into the Compass Centre to fund the day-to-day running of the facility.
