The song, recorded at the college’s Glenrothes Campus, also thanks SHIELD’s various contributors who have helped to support those most affected by the pandemic over the last eleven months.

The self-funded Fife group, created in March last year by Sarah Keeble, has so far supplied over 25,000 free meals and delivered over 60,000 tonnes of goods to those most in need in the community.

Titled ‘Raise your Shield’, the song was chosen following an online competition which asked applicants to create a positive and uplifting track which celebrated the work of the group.
