Full Tonne Kidd Competition winners!!
The response to our competition in February was absolutely staggering. We couldn't have hoped for a better response. We are genuinely touched by all of the beautiful stories that we received and we are absolutely humbled by the time and effort taken by everyone who put pen to paper.
It's not an easy thing to be honest about your feelings and it's never easy to click send once you have written them down.
It made our job really tough as not only did we receive over 30 heartwarming and heart breaking responses, but the quality of the writing was impeccable. We were genuinely touched and our job to select just one was very difficult. In fact it was impossible. So we chose 2.
The reality is that we were sent enough material for a double album and we may source this well of emotion again in the future. The stories we chose were the ones that kept ringing in our minds, the stories that spoke to us immediately and also what we felt we could do the most justice.
We want to thank everyone who submitted there personal tales from the bottom of our hearts and hope that taking the time to put your emotions and thoughts onto paper brought some reward of it's own.
The winners of the Dear Full Tonne Kidd competition are Ian Witheyman & George Kidd.
We'll be in touch in due course with an update on the progress of turning your stories into Full Tonne Kidd songs, in the mean time, have a think about where you would like us to perform for you!
Congratulations and thank you very much for being so honest and heartfelt.
