04 June 2010
Carers UK has today expressed its gratitude to the makers of a new World Cup single, who will donate all the profits from 'We're England (The Second Star)' to the charity.



Dead Ball Specialists wrote the song to celebrate English multi-culturalism and tolerance and champions the England team's fight to wear a 'second star' on their team kit – to mark a second World Cup Victory.

The single is available to download on Amazon, iTunes and Napster and alongside scoring thousands of hits on its Youtube page,The Football Association's 'Back the Bid Campaign' has added it to their official Facebook page - stating, "It's brilliant!".

Emily Holzhausen, Director of Policy and Public Affairs at Carers UK said: "This is a fantastic song with a powerful message behind it and we are delighted that the Dead Ball Specialists are donating the profits from the song to Carers UK. The UK's nearly 6 million carers provide a vital unpaid, function for society, saving the UK economy over £87 billion per year. However many carers say they feel ignored and invisible and the messages of inclusion and respect in the song will really ring true for them."
