During the COVID-19 lockdown, Tone Blakesley and Canterbury-based guitarist Daniel Keane, plus other artists, finished the recording of a track which has now been released. Tone would like his percentage of the funds raised to be donated to his chosen charity, Born Free.
On the track, Tone plays all the keyboards, and is one of the lead singers. He also wrote most of the lyrics and mixed the track, with contributions from many other artists.
Support Tone and Born Free by downloading the track – he hopes that you enjoy listening to it!
We are delighted to announce Dan's 20 x 50 For Lions, a fundraising challenge you can join in with!

Scedule to be anounced as soon as COVID-19 travel restrictions are lifted.
This inclusive challenge is open to anyone, so reach out to your friends and family, raise a minimum of £200 and join Dan in climbing a mountain for lions!
Even if you can't donate, you can help lions by sharing Dan's Just Giving page and sending good wishes!
Made in Chelsea’s Tristan is joining our challenge team and raising money for Born Free to Keep Wildlife in the Wild and conserve their natural habitats. In 2022 he is joining us to take on Mount Kenya, with altitudes up to 4,985m and difficult conditions – this is no mean feat!
While working as a safari guide in Botswana and South Africa, Tristan was inspired by African wildlife and now is raising money to protect Africa’s wildlife. During his time there, he saw first-hand, the damage that poaching and other exploitative activities do to the natural world and this motivated him to make the change, from the tourism sector, to activism and inspiring others!
