MOTHERWELL College students have released a single to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The project was put together by those on the HNC Music course after student Ron North lost one of his eyes to a rare form of cancer.

Ron, 26, from Lanark, underwent a series of treatments before eventually having surgery to remove his right eye last September.

He hopes the single will raise much-needed funds for the Trust, which he says helped him through his ordeal.

He said: “Coming to terms with losing an eye and having a prosthetic one fitted was a challenge.

“But thanks to the support from my lecturers, who helped me adjust, I’m now using my experience and my passion for music to do something for the Teenage Cancer Trust.”

Ron enlisted the help of his classmates to record Do These Words at the local Foundry Music Lab.

The track is available to download from all major online stores such as Amazon, Play, iTunes and Spotify. More information can be found at www.facebook/dothesewords.
