Rollits supports Archbishop Sentamu Academy students bid to top the charts
Rollits has worked closely
with Archbishop Sentamu Academy on the launch of its song "Move as
One" in a bid to top the music charts this Christmas.
Archbishop Sentamu Academy in
conjunction with record label Nu Skool Music has recorded the song,
with all proceeds from downloads after production and distribution
costs going to the international humanitarian aid charity Médecins
Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).
Andrew Chubb, Principal of
Archbishop Sentamu Academy and Chief Executive of the Sentamu
Academy Learning Trust, said: "We knew that there would be a raft
of legal issues to deal with in order to get such an audacious
project off the ground, so we approached Rollits' Education Team
for a solution. Their commercial & intellectual property
specialists worked closely with London-based expert music Counsel
Gwilym Harbottle of Hogarth Chambers to make sure that we put the
right legal structure in place to give the song the best chance of
"Although there is stiff
competition from contenders such as this year's X Factor winner and
Star Wars, it would be wonderful if "Move as One" claimed the
coveted Christmas number one slot this year".
James Peel, Commercial &
IP Associate within Rollits' Education Team, said: "We are
pleased to have been able to support Archbishop Sentamu Academy in
this innovative project. In addition to the exciting
real-life learning experience for the students the project is
raising much needed funds for a great charity."
The song will be released for
download on 18 December 2015. The official
video for the song can be viewed here and pre-orders are being taken right
