The 'singing solicitor' raising funds for local charity

Words by Abi Scaife

A charity single is raising thousands, thanks to the ‘Singing Solicitor’.

Tell me more.

Spearheaded by Northampton’s ‘Singing Solicitor’ Kevin Rogers, the cover version of Snow Patrol’s ‘Chasing Cars’ raised £1,600 for charity within the first 24 hours.

With the help of broadcaster John Griff, plus some talented school pupils, NHS staff and local musicians and businesspeople, the touching music video and song are raising funds for local charity, The Lewis Foundation.

Who are The Lewis Foundation?

The Lewis Foundation provides free weekly gifts and support packs to adult cancer patients in the hospital. The packs usually include items they might find difficult to buy themselves or simply cannot afford.

The charity was founded in 2016 by Lorraine and Lee, after they lived through four-plus years of hospital visits when Lee’s mum had cancer treatment.

The music video does a brilliant job of telling a heartwarming story of how The Lewis Foundation provides free gifts and care packs to adult cancer patients in 17 hospitals across the Midlands.

They have raised nearly £3,000 for charity and the donations are still pouring in.

If you want to watch the music video and listen to the song, you can do so on YouTube. You can donate to The Lewis Foundation through their JustGiving page, or via SMS by texting ‘Lewis’ to 70450.
