Granny Norbag is asking schools, workplaces and businesses to put a bucket or box under their Christmas tree and to collect donations for the South Yorkshire Flood Disaster Relief Appeal.

Granny Norbag has released her brand new single ’Under The Christmas Tree’ to help raise money and awareness for the SYCF Flood Appeal. Co-written and produced by William Price of Tunedin Music School Rotherham, this festive hit has the spirit of Christmas in every note.

St Bede’s School Choir in Rotherham have added some wonderful vocals to the song.

The 91-year-old, who is tipped to be the next Ariana Grandma said: “Well it was my friend Beryl who suggested it. You know, Beryl, the one with the wonky hip and the dodgy eye. She often looks like she's doing the rhumba as she walks to the Post Office. Well Beryl said that my Christmas song would be a good way for people to put a bucket under their Christmas trees and collect a few coins. This can be done in schools, offices, shops - anywhere really.”

The Flood Appeal is being run by local charity, South Yorkshire’s Community Foundation (SYCF) and the money raised is currently available to all households affected by flooding to help them meet their immediate needs whilst they deal with the damage to their homes.
