Ladywell Primary in Brits Nomination

12 December 2013

Following the very sad death of six year old Caden Beggan in November 2012, his school, Ladywell Primary School in Motherwell, recorded and released a song, O Holy Night, in his memory.

We have just heard the exciting news that Caden’s classmates have been shortlisted for a Brit Award for the British Breakthrough Act alongside Bastille, Amelia Lily, Nina Nesbit and Disclosure. The single which raised £7,000 for the Foundation reached number five in the Scottish charts and also broke into the UK top 40.

We look forward to hearing how they get on.
