96.4 Eagle reports, “The Jam release charity single in aid of Woking & Sam Beare Hospices.”

A limited edition charity single is being released on 20th February to raise money for Woking & Sam Beare Hospices. 

The song titled 'Left, Right & Centre' was written by two members of punk rock band the Jam. Paul Weller and Steve Brookes wrote it when they were 15 years old. 

Victor Falsetta is behind the fundraising project. He tells us what they have planned: "We have got an after show party upstairs with a band called Coco La Funk. "They're friends with Chris Cook who died last year in the (RideLondon-Surrey) cycle ride. "It's going to be very emotional the whole evening, but raising money for Woking & Same Beare Hospices is something we all like doing." 

Victor tells us he is pleased he managed to persuade his old school friend, Paul, to do it: "It was a surprise for me, and a relief when he said yes. "It was something we put a lot of work in to beforehand to get the contacts." 

The song was recorded by James Stone at his studio in Kent (Dusty Attic) and has been mixed at Paul's own studio by his engineer Charles Rees. The release has already attracted the attention of dedicated fans all over the UK. 

Victor adds: "Paul wanted us to use an unsigned local band to record his song so The Special Guest was the perfect choice, and Steve Brooks had just finished of his new single so it all came together nicely." 

The single will be released in three editions; 200 on black vinyl; 50 on clear vinyl also containing a copy of the handwritten lyrics on the cover; and 50 Deluxe copies, which in addition to the lyrics will also include a CD with the acoustic and live version of the Weller track. 

Community Fundraiser Wendy Denty said: "It's a brilliant project and Vic is so relentless in his Fundraising for our Hospice at no gain to himself and for that we are really grateful. "We simply can't thank him enough." 

All editions can be ordered from Woking Hospices' Fundraising Department on 01483 881752 or by emailing  

Prices range from £15 to £30 and all proceeds will go directly to Woking Hospice. 

The release will take place in the 100 Club in London and will be followed by a concert at the HG Wells suit in Woking on the 21 February, featuring The Special Guest, The Transmitters, The Lost Boys and many more.
