More than 30 years after Band Aid released a song for starving children in Africa, Landbay Managing Director of Intermediaries Paul Brett and Coreco Brand Director Andrew Montlake (the Geldof and Ure of the mortgage industry) have got a group of people together to record a Christmas charity single to raise money for young people closer to home.

The song Take Me Home will be released today and is about life on the streets in the UK, a reality for a growing number of young people. Proceeds from the song will go to End Youth Homelessness (EYH), the same charity that Mortgage Sleep Out raised money for last month when more than a thousand people slept on the streets.

It costs EYH £25 per day to put a roof over a young person’s head and give them the healthcare, education and employment they need to turn their lives around. Every penny raised will make a real difference to the lives of the young people currently on our streets.

Take Me Home was recorded earlier this month by M.I.C (Mortgage Industry Collective), featuring Paul and Andrew plus Kit Thompson (Brightstar), Howard Levy (SPF), Amanda Fenner (HSBC) and Andy Rowe (Computershare).

The song was recorded at the famous Powerstudio in London, which is owned by producer Benny D, who has worked with a host of top names including Stormzy, Boy George, Kylie, Plan B, Robbie Williams, Paloma Faith and Depeche Mode. The project has also had assistance from musical director Jenny Deacon, a local choir and many different people across the mortgage industry who have all donated their time and their talent to the project.
