Lauren Kelly with Nick MasonNick Mason is one of the star names supporting 'The Young Songwriters Competition' in aid of the UK's biggest children's charity Barnardo's. As part of his support, Nick played drums on a track called 'This Is My Story' written and performed by Lauren Kelly from Kingswood School, Bath. Lauren was one of the 4 successful finalists that won the opportunity to record at Mark Knopfler's studio 'The British Grove' in London.

The song is now available to download from or from iTunes. Each track is only available to download until December 17th and costs 80p; for each track sold 45p will go to Barnardo's! The song that achieves the most downloads will be the winner.
