Lincoln flashmob sings to end world hunger

Singing for charity: Over 60 singers banded together in Lincoln to highlight a new international charity campaign with a flashmob.

Shoppers around Lincoln were given a surprise on Saturday, May 25, as a group of singers banded together in various spots to raise awareness of world hunger.

Over 60 singers performed in the Waterside Shopping Centre and along the High Street to promote the “Enough Food for Everyone IF…” campaign, which recently launched with the help of 100 charities.

The campaign highlights world hunger and what should be done about it. Charities involved include Christian Aid, Oxfam, Tearfund, ActionAid, Save the Children, World Vision, Islamic Relief, NUS, British Humanist Organisation and more.

The IF… Singers handed out leaflets to shoppers to tell them more about the campaign.

The singers came from several local choirs, such as Nettleham Community Choir, Revival Lincolnshire Choir, the Diocesan Ladies Choir, members of Transition Lincoln & the Luminous community and members from the Threshold Church.

Their main event on Saturday was the first time everyone has sung together.
