Lincoln shoppers invited to join Christmas sing-along for charity

People visiting Lincoln High Street on Saturday, December 12 are being invited to belt out their favourite Christmas tunes with a host of musical guests for charity.

Local end of life care charity St barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice is hosting its annual sing-along with musical acts including staff, volunteers, local choirs and musical groups.

The festive, interactive performances will be joined by a collection for the charity, which will go directly towards a patient’s stay in the 11 bed In-Patient Unit and a Christmas Dinner.

The event will run from 9am to 3pm in St Benedict’s Square and will also feature a stall where the musical acts will perform and last minute stocking fillers can be purchased.

There will be various musical performances throughout the day with acts such as Acapella Sounds, Lincoln College, Lincoln Ukulele Band and members from the Lincoln University Orchestra.

Amelia Fairweather from a local Beaver Scouts group said: “The Beaver Scouts at 12th Lincoln Dragonfly Colony, wanted to do something nice for people in our local community.

“They wanted to help people at Christmas time and they love to sing!! St Barnabas was a natural choice as several of our families have been helped by them.”

Robert Steadman, Conductor for the University of Lincoln Orchestra added: “The University Orchestra are very keen to be involved in the Christmas Sing-Along because we feel music reaches out and unites people in a way little else can. We are all part of one city, United in song!”

Anyone who would like to get involved by performing a 30 minute set should get in touch with Ben Petts on 01522 559515 or email: ben.petts@stbarnabashospice.co.uk
