​A firefighter from London Road Fire Station has joined colleagues from across the country in recording a charity Christmas single.

Andy Quinn takes a leading role in the song, which is a cover of the seasonal classic made famous by Band Aid, “Do They Know It’s Christmas”.

On the song Andy sings the section originally sung by Boy George, as well as, providing backing vocals throughout.

The group, called The Fire Tones, made up of between 35 and 40 firefighters and control room staff are releasing the single with all proceeds going to both The Fire Fighters Charity and The Band Aid Charity Trust.

Andy, pictured above, said: “It was great meeting all the other firefighters and singing together. Because we’re all firefighters, we all get on well with each other. There's an excellent camaraderie between us all.

“It would be fantastic if we could get to the top of the charts but really it’s all about raising as much money as possible for charity!”

The Fire Tones is the creation of Welshpool Firefighter, Chris Birdsell-Jones, of Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service.

The single is released on November 30. You can listen to a sample of the single and pre-order your copy here: https://thefiretones.com/
