SING UPDATE

OXFORD STREET SELLS OUT OF STOCK

UK SELLS OVER HALF STOCK IN TWO DAYS

 
In two days of trading The Body Shop outlets in Ireland and Oxford Street have already sold out of SING CD stock, while the rest of the UK outlets are reporting over half sold by Wednesday 12th March. While stock levels should be refilled by the end of this week, customers wishing to purchase the CD and help support South Africa’s T.A.C can visit both The Body Shop online and an official SING site at www.officialsingshop.com   to purchase their copy.
 
On Monday 10th March Annie Lennox appeared at The Body Shop, Oxford Street, London to launch the Body Shop’s limited edition version of the SING CD to raise awareness for South Africa’s Treatment Action Campaign (TAC). Despite the widespread reports of extreme weather conditions over 400 people visited the shop to get their SING CD signed by Annie Lennox.
 
As part of their support, The Body Shop are selling and distributing a special edition of the groundbreaking “Sing” CD at selected UK outlets from 10th – 23rd March, to support TAC projects in South Africa. This will be the first time The Body Shop has ever sold music to the public.
 
At least £1.50 from the sale of each Limited Edition Body Shop CD will be donated to the Annie Lennox Foundation (Registered Charity Number: 1114795) towards Treatment Action Campaign charitable projects supporting and educating women and children in Africa with HIV/AIDS.

Toby Morgan, Values Manager at The Body Shop UK & ROI comments "At The Body Shop International we have a longstanding commitment to campaign and raise awareness around the issue of HIV/Aids. It is for this reason we are proud to support the SING campaign and commend Annie Lennox in her efforts to raise awareness of this global issue."


SING’s objectives are as follows:

To help raise awareness about the HIV/Aids pandemic, which is devastating the lives of millions of women and children.

To raise funds in order to help support the work of grass roots organisations such as TAC.

To support, educate and enlighten those who are affected or infected.

To encourage people at an international level to become more involved and pro active in supporting those who are worst affected.

To help break down the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS in order to create a more constructive dialogue and response at a community level, both locally and globally.
