Smaller parties hoping to gain share of power

In two weeks, voting will be over and results from the general election will be known.

Charity single to raise cash for the Bradford Burns Unit

A special charity single is set to be released next week to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Bradford City Fire Disaster and to raise funds for the Bradford Burns Unit, which was founded in the wake of the tragedy.

The song - Everywhere We Go - is the brainchild of City's orthopaedic surgeon Steve Bollen, who plays with a Harrogate-based band 'Never 2 Late'.

The single includes radio commentary from the Bantams' memorable FA Cup run this season, with the chorus sung by the crowd and recorded at last month's League 1 match against Fleetwood Town at Valley Parade.

The song - which also features members of City's first team squad - will be played ahead of the Bantams' final home game of the season against Barnsley on Saturday, when there'll also be a minute's silence to remember the 56 fans who died in the tragedy on May 11, 1985.

It's due for full release on Tuesday 28th April, priced at just 99p, and it can be pre-ordered by clicking here.
