A SONG co-written by our musical MP has been re-recorded by a choir of local children.

The Remix Pop Choir has made a lively and impassioned version of Give Me Hope, penned by David Morris MP and Morecambe songwriter Russ Courtenay.

They performed the song on The Bay radio’s breakfast show to commemorate more than 13,000 school children having the day off to join in with the Olympic torch festivities at the weekend.

The choir is made up of eight to 16-year-olds and rehearse at Torrisholme Methodist Church with musical director and singing teacher Andee Robinson.

The children will also be singing at the Armed Forces Day service at St Barnabas’ Church, in Morecambe’s West End, this weekend.
