AFL Hyperscale Band ‘The Hyperscalers’ were back for another Christmas original by our very own Miles Walsh, joined once again by lead vocalist Dan Brown, violinist Lesley Burrell, and new vocal additions from Rhiannon Robertson and Ros Neat.
Last year, the popular ‘December Snow’ raised £1,100. This year, Miles wrote a more rock-inspired number and together with the band raised an impressive £1,952 for MK Food Bank. Mk Food Bank, established in 2004, supports more than 5,000 families in the local family every year.
The cost-of-living crisis is affecting more and more people. In 2022, MK Food Bank gave out some 15,000 emergency food parcels. This figure is 30% more than last year and is consistently increasing.
“In the last 18 months MK Food Bank have supported around 1 in 30 households across Milton Keynes. This means on average one in every school class, at least one in each street, and probably one in your workplace. And every week at least 50 people contact us for the very first time.” (Source: MK Food Bank official website).
This year’s song, ‘Santa Brought a Guitar’, proved to be a catchy and immensely popular number.
A big well done to the band for all their hard work and a special thank you to everyone who donated to this worthy cause. What a wonderful way to kick off the new year!
