Following on from the successful cancer treatment received by his nephew in Crumlin Children’s Hospital last year, current Rose of Tralee Escort of the Year, John Slowey set about raising funds for CMRF Crumlin (it’s official fundraising body). Using his musical talents and his extensive Rose of Tralee connections, John lead the production of a charity single, “It’s Time” which was recorded by the combined “Class of 2016” International Roses and Rose Escorts. All proceeds from the single go directly to the charity.
At three of our recent selection events in Dublin, the CD was offered for sale to audience members at €5 per copy and we are delighted to announce that a combined €1,500 was raised as a result.
John Slowey said:
The generosity shown by the family and friends of all our 47 roses in Dublin was incredible. I just want to thank them all for their support for the Roses and Rose Escorts of 2016 charity campaign for CMRF Crumlin.
The single is available for purchase on all major digital download sites. It’s official video is shown below:
