Digital Advent Calendar – Door 1: Do They Know It’s Christmas
There’ve been no live gigs for a long time. But some of brightest names from Reading’s fantastic music scene have come together in the spirit of all things Bob & Midge to put their own spin on this perennial Christmas classic. Recorded in Covid-secure conditions over two days at Whitehouse Studios.
Much like the original Band Aid, this version of Do They Know It’s Christmas is here to support those going without food during a very difficult time. Readifood is Reading’s Food Bank, and they need your support more than ever in 2020. Please click on the donate button and give what you can. Because nobody should be going hungry – at Christmas, or any other day of the year.
Check out their “how can I help” page for how you can donate time, money or food to support them.
