The Society endorse Mike’s new song about John Pounds. Janet Ayers of the Society says “Mike’s song brings a fresh feel to this 200 year old story, communicating John’s struggle living with disability and the plight of the poor children in Portsmouth who he did so much to help. By doing so reminds us that it is every child’s birthright to have an education. A message that is still relevant today. Mike’s folk style invokes the sound of folk music in John Pounds’ day and brings it into the 21st Century with a passionate melody and great performance”.
