Ann Hird It is a poignant memory of a wonderful lady who who not only kept the faith, but stayed strong through the darkest of hours! This song will always remind me of that strength and resilience that striking miners wives have. RIP all those who have gone too soon- solidarity with my sisters xx


Written to commemorate the sad passing of Sandra Lanaghan, a truly wonderful woman and much-loved member of the Hatfield Brigade who died following a long battle with cancer.

I sang this at the funeral, and with her husband Mick's blessing, we want this song to help raise money for a new Family Room on Ward G5 of Doncaster Royal Infirmary, so all proceeds from you downloading 'Keep The Faith' will be donated in Sandra's memory.

Please help us give some comfort to others in Sandra's name.


From Wigan dancefloors, powder down
And all-night Northern Soul
Until the day that pit fall
Put me on the Rock'n'Roll
We had good times, we had bad times
But we always made it through
Now I'll Keep The Faith for you

I've the Devil and the Irish Rebel
Burning in my blood
That's what Sister Agnes said
I'd never be no good
But your smile it lit up the world
And made it all brand new
Now I Keep The Faith for you

Now they'll hang your plaque up on the Wall
Of Memories in this room
And the sun will shine back off it
On a summer's afternoon
And I hope someone finds your strength
To see their struggles through
And I'll Keep The Faith for you
