Colt 45 Release Charity Single To Benefit Flood Relief In Cumbria

(TeamRock Radio) Colt 45 have released a charity single to raise funds for those affected by the recent floods in their home county of Cumbria. The rockers will donate all proceeds from sales of their track I Remember When The Rain Came Down to the Cumbria Flood Appeal. The area faces months of rebuilding after Storm Desmond wreaked havoc this month. It was declared a "major incident" by police as the towns of Carlisle, Appleby, Keswick and Kendal faced the brunt of the rainfall.

Colt 45 say: "We've all been affected by the terrible floods in Cumbria previously in 2005 and 2009 and now, again, right before Christmas this year. The community spirit here in Carlisle and Workington has been amazing - everyone's helping each other out with the clean-up, sorting through destroyed possessions and trying to prepare for as normal a Christmas as possible.

"We've been lucky this time to not be directly hit ourselves, and our rehearsal room just about survived, but we have close family and friends whose homes and belongings have been destroyed - some for the second or third time in 10 years." Read more and stream the track here.
