Long queues at Strand to get signed copy

Hundreds of people queued to get their hands on a signed copy of the Island’s big local charity CD yesterday afternoon (Sunday).

The Manx Breast Cancer Support Group's cover of 'One Day Like This' sold more than 400 copies in just three hours!

Featuring X-Factor contestant Simon Lynch, talented young singer-songwriter Mae Challis and local singer Mark Walton, it was recorded a fortnight ago with a huge public chorus, including many children.

Yesterday, the queue at the Strand Shopping Centre in Douglas to have the CD signed by Simon, Mark and Mae, started before the artists arrived - and it didn't let up until the centre closed at five o’clock.

The CD is on sale around the Island - and although some outlets have sold out already, they are being restocked today (Monday).
