The Norfolk BrOARds Releases Fundraising Cover Of ‘Santa Baby’

With their normal fundraising avenues closed to them this year, and the withdrawal of sponsorship, amateur ocean rowing team, The Norfolk BrOARds have turned their hand to singing, in order to raise funds to buy a boat.

The Norfolk BrOARds have covered ‘Santa Baby’, with the aim to raise enough money to buy a new boat, in order to complete “The World’s Toughest Row” challenge. The team are hoping to row 3000 miles across the Atlantic in December next year.

Comprising Sandra Squire (Boots), Kate Palmer (Calamity) & Kristi Fletcher (Fletch), The Norfolk BrOARds show they can sing as well as they can row. The fun Christmas single captures their cheeky personalities perfectly, and the group teamed up with talented local musicians and engineers to record the single. Speaking about the track, Sandra said,

“We know how tough things are for musicians at the moment and it was a real joy to be able to work with them.”

‘Santa Baby’ is out December 11 and can be pre-saved here. Support The Norfolk BrOARds online on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
