Georgia is on our mind

This week was all about Money, or so it seemed, the spending review reminded us we are broke, except there was plenty of money floating around to buy a footballer or two.

Simply Red opened the show with 'Money's too tight to mention', naturally.

Pete Hewitt was chatting on The Breakfast Show about the launch of a CD called 'Georgia on our mind'.
This local release CD is to raise money and awareness for Georgias Teenage Cancer Appeal; the local charity that is named after Brentwood youngster Georgia Cordery, who passed away from a rare form of cancer in May of this year.
Along with many, Pete has been humbled by the bravery of Georgia and her family, seeing the situation developing through the eyes of a parent of a son, Jonathan, who is classmates with Georgia's younger brother.
Shortly after being diagnosed in 2008, Georgia and her parents set up the GTCA, and to date, they have raised more than £200,000, and Pete is hoping to add another £5000 to this.
The CD is brilliantly produced, it is a beautiful version of the song, played on harmonica, and every sale will help to further the work of Georgias Teenage Cancer Appeal.
There are two ways YOU can help:
By purchasing a copy of the CD by visiting:
The Boar's Head in Herongate
Herongate Village Stores
The Golden Lion in the Market (Music pub in Romford)
The Hair Company, Crown Street, Brentwood
French Quarter, Crown Street, Brentwood
Phoenix FM at The Baytree Centre in Brentwood
And, if you are a retail outlet, then please consider selling some CDs, if you are able to.
