A local band has performed a song specially for Trinity in the hope that it raises much-needed funds.

The Cooper Collective from Blackpool, dedicated their cover of ‘You’ve Got the Love’ by Florence and the Machine to Trinity.

“We chose ‘You’ve Got The Love’ because it’s very apt for the hospice. They provide the love along with care, dedication and support,” said drummer, Kim.

“I had a dear friend who passed away too soon; he was cared for by Trinity Hospice. His family was  supported by the hospice too during what was a very emotional time.”

The five-member band is also aiming to raise money for Trinity with their project.

“Trinity Hospice provides a vital service in our community and it’s crucial it’s supported, even more so right now with the ongoing effects of COVID-19.”

The Cooper Collective debuted their music video online to followers over the Bank Holiday Weekend, and in less than 24 hours had over 160 views on YouTube and raised over £250 on their JustGiving page.

The Cooper Collective has been together for just over a year, with band members having been on the North West music scene for some time. But this is the first time they’ve recorded remotely a track.

“It’s been a new challenge but it’s certainly given us all a positive focus in these difficult times and allowed us to explore a new way of recording.”

“We had to find a way; the music must go on, especially when there’s a well-deserved cause involved.”


Band Members: Christy Cooper (Lead Vocals), Norman Burrows (Bass), Amanda Ellarby  (Keyboards and Vocals), Kim Sweeney (Drums and Percussion) and Kevin Berry (Guitar and Vocals).
