The track was written and performed by members of the mortgage industry who came together following the Mortgage SleepOut event, where fundraisers gave up their bed for a night.
Kit Thompson from Brightstar, who played guitar on the song, said that was great to be part of something that could change the lives of those less fortunate.
He added: “It demonstrates just how utterly awesome the mortgage industry is and, when we come together as a group, we can really make a difference to people’s lives. Please share and download the song. Your 79p can make a difference and change lives.”
Howard Levy from SPF Private Clients said he was privileged to be the drummer on the mortgage industry’s charity single.
He said: “It has been a while since I played in a band, or recorded, and so when Paul Brett asked me I jumped at the chance, and especially so when I heard how good the song was.
“When he told me which charity the single was to support, I couldn’t say no. As an industry that provides loans to help people purchase properties, I felt it important to do something for those people who find themselves homeless, particularly at this time of year.”
Industry coming together
Andy Rowe, from Zephyr Homeloans, said it was a brilliant experience to play bass guitar on the song and design the logo.
Amanda Fenner from HSBC, who sang on the record, said: “Watching the industry come together with the recent Mortgage Sleep Out was very inspirational.
“This felt like a brilliant next step to keep up awareness and raise money – I am delighted to be part of it. Seeing so many homeless people every day in our capital and across the UK, you can’t help but be touched by the problem.
“We are giving everyone a chance to help eradicate youth homelessness for less than a pound. It is not so much ‘can we afford to support it’ and more ‘can we afford not to’.”
