Schoolgirl writes song to help the homeless this winter

Written byJORDAN DAY

A talented schoolgirl has written a song to support homeless people in Cambridgeshire.

Budding singer/songwriter Megan Simpson, 13, was inspired to write ‘Walking By’, by Cambridge-based author, screenwriter and worker with the homeless, Alexander Masters, who is a family friend.

The song, in which Megan, who lives with her family in Exning and is a pupil at Soham Village College, sings and plays the piano, is now available to download.

The money made from each download will go directly to Cambridge Cyrenians and WinterComfort, both of which support those who are homeless or vulnerably housed in the Cambridge area.

Megan said: “I enjoyed everything about composing and producing the song.

“Two downloads will cover the equivalent of the cost of a hot breakfast for a homeless person.”
