Simon Jacobs, Head of the Music Department at Greenhead College, said: “We are really excited about the Carol project and it is fantastic to have three local primary schools working alongside us. It is wonderful to see our sixth form students performing with younger students on a large scale project such as this one.

"The Carol written by Greenhead A1 student Louis Enright is a really challenging piece with some magical harmony. I can't wait to see what the public make of it!"

There are several ways to donate to the cause through Just Giving or by texting an amount of your choice, for example, to donate £10, text GCOL55 £10 to 70070.

You can also download the Carol for £0.99 from both Amazon and iTunes.
