Actors descended on the Wellhead in Bourne last week to make a music video to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War.

Steven Giullari, of Rippingale, is putting together a song called When the Rain Falls to mark the anniversary and raise funds for the Royal British Legion.

The song, which will be released in time for the anniversary of the outbreak of war in August, is being put together on a zero budget 
and with the help of volunteers.

Andrew Craig Sheppard, an actor who has starred in ITV soaps Coronation Street and Emmerdale, and actress Laura McDonald, were at the Wellhead in Bourne to film scenes for the video on Thursday last week.

Jed Jaggard, from Up ‘an at’ em History was also there.

Pupils from Bourne Abbey Primary School’s choir will also be involved and in a few weeks’ time, they will be visiting the Beat This recording studio in Peterborough, to record their section.

Steve, who will also sing on the song, said the project had started as a New Year’s resolution to raise funds for charity and had run from there.

He said: “So far, there has been a great spirit with all these people coming together for one reason - to raise funds for charity.

“It has been amazing to have so many people volunteering their time and expertise.

“I’ve had knockbacks and there have been challenges but it is all starting to come together now and I’m really excited about it.

“I hope it will be a great achievement and will raise a lot of money for the Royal British Legion.”

Steve, who works as a window cleaner, said more than 30 people were on board but he is still keen to hear from anyone who might want to get involved. E-mail steve@non-time.co.uk or visit www.justgiving.com/loveofasoldier.
