IAAF Head of Membership Development, Mike Smallbone, has harnessed his musical talents to record and release a song in his “home bedroom type recording studio” to raise money for The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
The single, called ‘They Still Feel It’, is now available to buy and download from iTunes and Amazon, with all proceeds raised going directly to support this worthy cause.
The song, which is in memory of soldiers and a thank you to veterans, holds particular poignancy for Mike as his grandfather was awarded a medal of distinction for serving in the First World War, which marks its 100th anniversary on Sunday 11 November.
Mike has funded this project himself and “with a little help from his friends” has also compiled a video for the single, which can be viewed on YouTube (To enjoy the best sound quality, please play on a high quality set of speakers).
If you’d like to donate to the Poppy Appeal by downloading the track, please go to Amazon or you can search for the song via the iTunes app by simply typing, “Mike Smallbone” and selecting the relevant song.
