University colleagues go on the record for charity Christmas single

Date 11.12.2019

Members of Northamptonshire’s business community have been channelling their inner Bono and Boy Georges for a Christmas charity single recorded at the University of Northampton’s NLive radio studios.

The cast of singers, which included colleagues from the University, belted their way through Band Aid’s 1984 smash hit, Do They Know It’s Christmas? in a bid to raise much-needed funds for KidsAid.
