Music Scholars create original theme song for charity Friend In Deed

09 March 2021

Norwich School was recently commissioned by Norfolk charity Friend In Deed to create a theme song for the charity to use across their activities.

Friend In Deed aims to create friendships across generations, helping to combat loneliness in older generations – an aim which is more important than ever in these unusual times.

Norwich School has been partnering with Friend In Deed since 2017, and our pupils have had the chance to get involved with a range of wonderful projects, such as creative performance at care homes, intergenerational quizzes and intergenerational sports days.

This latest collaboration was undertaken by two Norwich School Music Scholars, Amy Griffiths (U5) and Abi Flatt (L6).  They took part in a songwriting workshop, gathering inspiration from a list of buzz words supplied by Kelly, the founder of the charity.

They have produced an original song which they performed and recorded last week. The song can now be used for Friend In Deed’s videos and activities.

Friend in Deed Theme Song - lyrics

With a seed comes a stem
And that stem grows a flower
Each of us blossom
Alone or together
Wherever we go
We always know
We have a friend in deed

In the dark of the winter
And heat of the summer
In autumn and spring
We’ve got one another
Wherever we go
We always know
We have a friend in deed

Here we are
All together
There’s so much we can’t control
And we’re here to share a smile
Building friendships young and old
With music, love and kindness
There’s nothing we can’t achieve
We’re here to bring you all the joy you need
Friend in deed

There’ll be storms that will pass
And come rain or sunshine
We’ll keep our heads up
We know we’ll be fine
Wherever we go
We always know
We have a friend in deed

Some days a rainbow
Appears in the sky
Whatever you go through
We’ll be by your side
Wherever you go
We always know
We have a friend in deed

I’ll be here for you
Forever in bloom
We’ll always have a friend in deed
