A Soham musician has embarked on a fundraising mission by challenging himself to record a new song every week during 2016.

Mike Fitzgerald set himself the task to write and record 52 tunes during the year, and he says he is “delighted” that he is on track to completing the impressive feat to raise money for Nordoff Robins, which provides music therapy.

“It was a daft New Years’ resolution, really,” he said.

“Some of my ideas have come out fully-formed and I’m quite pleased with them and others have been works in progress.

“I’ve just gone for it, which has been quite liberating because songwriters are usually a bit precious about their material. I couldn’t afford to be.

“Most of us take music for granted but many people are not able to enjoy it in the way that we can, so Nordoff Robbins’ music therapy can be life changing.

“It can help a child with autism to communicate, reduce anxiety for those living with dementia or provide comfort and celebrate the life of someone facing terminal illness.”
