Queen tribute band’s fundraiser for Eastbourne charity
A Queen tribute band from Eastbourne has recorded a video of one of the group’s biggest hits to raise money for charity.
Fat Freddie and The Queens have recorded Don’t Stop Me Now with their own comical twist to boost the coffers of You Raise Me Up, the Eastbourne charity which supports families after the death of a child aged 16-25.
Danny Pulleyn, aka Brian May and the lead guitarist of the band, said “With the charity’s support centre and coffee shop in Polegate operating within the lockdown restrictions, a lot of the charity’s income has stopped so we thought why not do what we love and try to raise funds for a good cause at the same time.”
Simon Harrington, who performs in the band as Freddie Mercury, said, “The charity is close to our hearts and with my wife losing her brother as a young adult we totally understand the devastation this causes families and the importance of sustaining a charity like this.
“That’s when we came up with the idea of the video and to make it fun to cheer people up in these times.”
