Pupils from Sarah Bonnell School in Stratford, East London, UK have again embarked on an ambitious venture: to release a charity single and crack the top 40 download chart!
The song ‘Figure It Out’ was released on Monday June 2. Written by and performed by students aged between 11 and 16 years old, the single will raise money for vulnerable young people, in this case bright needy girls in developing countries from across the Commonwealth. The students will donate all the proceeds from sales to the CCL Education Fund to work with these bright girls to give them equal opportunities for secondary/high school education in their own countries.
Last year’s single reached 130 in the iTunes charts, and this year the aim is to better that!
The track was recorded in London’s renowned studio, The Premises, with producer Iain Gore, producer of Lethal Bizzle.
The single is also available on the internet and the students are using the internet and social media to spread the message.

The CCLEF is delighted that the Sarah Bonnell students have chosen the CCLEF as the beneficiary of any monies raised. As Penny O'Regan, CCLEF Education Fund Chair said in her message to the Sarah Bonnell students, "We all know that right now in the world, so many girls have very little opportunity to access even basic education and for you to think of others less fortunate than yourselves is very kind and generous."
