Arden Production Manager releases song for charity
Posted on: Thursday, April 29th, 2021
A talented member of Team Arden has been using his song-writing skills to raise money for charity.
Our Production Manager Julian Homer has written and released a charity single in aid of suicide prevention charity Papyrus.
Julian has worked at Arden Engraving for more than 20 years, but when he’s not working he can often be found penning and performing songs under his pseudonym – Glossop Man Sings.
His latest song has been inspired by the Stockport Spidermen – a group of fundraisers who have been dressing as superheroes to put a smile on people’s faces during the pandemic and raise much-needed funds for charity.
Julian’s song ‘Parachuting Spidermen’ is about the group’s latest plan to raise money, which is a parachute jump taking place on Monday, May 3, which they’re hoping will help them raise £100,000 for Papyrus.
Musician Julian is helping boost the coffers of the fundraising appeal with all proceeds from his song going to the cause.
He said: “I am from Glossop originally and I’m known as the Glossop Man Sings and have been doing daft songs throughout pandemic
“This song I’ve written is all about what Stockport Spidermen are doing, running around raising smiles making money for charity and includes a message about mental health.
“I decided to sell it as a charity single with all money going to their current charity Papyrus – I’m selling it for 59p to make it quite cheap so as many people as possible can afford it.”
The song is entirely original and Julian has even roped in his son Oliver and actor Tony Audenshaw, who plays Bob Hope in Emmerdale, to join him on the single. It’s now available to purchase at: https://glossopmansings.bandcamp.com/track/parachuting-spidermen
