'˜Grumpy' Gripple boss aims for the top

In an unlikely bid for the Christmas number one, Hugh Facey OBE and Sheffield-based manufacturer Gripple have released a charity single in aid of Whirlow Hall Farm Trust.

Titled Grumpiness (Santa’s Christmas Crisis), the song is a novel take on an original song, Happiness, recorded by Bill Anderson and later covered by popular comedian, Ken Dodd.

The song features Hugh, founder and chairman of Gripple as a ‘grumpy’ Santa, disillusioned with modern life but cheered up by the children and the arrival of Christmas time.

The song is available to stream and download on Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music.
