Following two years of very hard work and tremendous fun, we finally had our MissusHippy Country Covers Album launch on Friday 2nd September 2016. MissusHippy are a country duo comprising of Drew Shearer and Gail Collins.
We decided there was no better cause than Cardiac Risk in The Young to dedicate all monies raised in memory of Andy Shearer (Drew and Sally’s son who passed away in his sleep in March 2002).
There were over 100 family and friends in attendance as well as members of the public who had never heard of C-R-Y before and there were a few bereaved parents who came along to provide support to MissusHippy and the charity.
It was a very happy night with loads of laughs and “Some Great Music” of Course!! The buffet was a rousing success and there were more raffle prizes than there were people.
By the end of the night after a fantastic rendition of Purple Rain and a mass takeover of the stage – we raised a phenomenal £1,000 which we are very proud of.
This was not MissusHippy’s first charity gig for CRY and hopefully it will not be the last. It is a fantastic platform to raise awareness. Each CD has dedications printed on them and hopefully this will encourage the purchasers to find out more about CRY and you never know, they may very well go on to raise some money themselves.
