This December 1st, on the 20th anniversary of The Farm’s hit single ‘All Together Now’, the Liverpudlian legends have kindly agreed to re-release the single and donate proceeds from the downloads to a very special charity, Operation Shoebox UK.
For the month of December, the proceeds will go towards helping the Shoebox appeal fulfill its role in making the lives of our overseas servicemen and women in Afghanistan a bit more tolerable this Christmas. The charity delivers shoeboxes filled with popular items like razors, magazines and toothpaste.
Also in conjunction with The Farm’s record label Demon Music Group, the funds are being raised in order to send over 14,000 shoeboxes to troops and personnel in Afghanistan this Christmas.
Peter Hooton lead singer of The Farm commented ‘We had already arranged to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the song with a concert in Liverpool on Dec 4th but when the Shoebox Appeal asked us to consider re-releasing the track we thought it was the right thing to do. The song is about a ‘spirit stronger than war’ and the Shoebox Appeal fits into that sentiment. This appeal is about giving and that’s surely what Christmas is all about.”
