The leader of the Wanstead and Woodford Rock Choir will take part in a 24-hour fundraising event tomorrow (19 May) in aid of Mental Health Awareness Week.
Rock Choir, which has 32,000 members nationally, will host #RockChoir24, a non-stop event via their Facebook page from 11am on Tuesday 19 May to 11am the following day.
Throughout the day and night, the Rock Choir team will host an energetic schedule of dynamic singing sessions, themed musical events, songs from the decades and social musical events as well as sessions aimed at teenagers and younger children. There will be something for everyone to enjoy. A virtual music Rock Choir festival, which can be experienced from the comfort of everyone’s own home,” said a spokesperson.
Nicola Cain, who looks after the choirs in Woodford and Wanstead, Ealing, Hampstead and Marylebone, will be leading some of the live sessions in the fundraiser.
The event is aimed at the general public and not just Rock Choir members. Donations can be made via the Facebook donate option on Rock Choir’s Facebook page as well as a text option, which can be made by texting SING5 to donate £5 or SING10 to donate £10 to 70500.
